A loan of $250 helped to buy a freezer and cell phone accessories.

Andres Alfonso's story

Andrés, 52, lives in the city of Leon and is the father of 6 children. He has a business selling ice and repairing cellular phones. He started his business because of the economic situation and the shortage of employment opportunities. Also, he cannot be without income for the household, due to the need to feed and clothe his children. He started at the bottom selling ice, because the city has a very hot climate, and there is a constant flow of customers in search of ice. He learned to repair cellular phones, a business that helps him to generate more income. Now he has 10 years of experience with these two businesses. He would like to have a store where he could sell parts for cellular phones and appliances. One of his goals is to repair his home and buy glass display cases to exhibit the new parts and accessories for cell phones.

He needs a loan to buy a freezer and to buy cell phone accessories to sell.
