A loan of $1,075 helped to buy gas cylinders.


Jorge Washington's story

Jorge is a supplier of small domestic gas tanks in Libertad. He began this business when he retired from the Navy where he rendered his services. It’s a job that always has customers and so he works every day from 8:30 in the morning until 6:00pm. He buys his orders from the large distributors and later sells them by unit, as the authorities suggest, buying the cylinders at $2.00 and selling at $2.50. He is requesting a loan in order to buy more cylinders to have on hand as there are some months that the products are scarce. In the future he hopes to be able to expand his house and make his stockroom larger.
