A loan of $1,050 helped to buy pants, shirts, cell phones.


Jose Leonel's story

Jose is requesting a new loan to invest in new merchandise like pants, shirts, cell phones, and other merchandise that he buys in Panama. He manages to get the lowest prices in this country. By doing so he is able to have a greater margin of income from his sales.

With the previous loan he managed to improve his business by increasing his inventory. This allows him to offer his customers a better variety. His sales have increased, which allows better expenses for the family’s living conditions.
