Nelson Santiago's story

Nelson lives in Libertad where he has a grocery store. He chose this activity because he could not get a job. He started with a small amount of capital that was given to him as a severance when his job ended. With this small sum he started his business, buying only snacks, soft drinks, sweets, rice, grains, and canned goods. He gradually increased his products according to the demand of his customers. He feels satisfied that thanks to this business, he has been able to cover the expenses for himself and his family. Now Nelson is separated, but he has 2 children that he must help financially. This is the reason why he is requesting a loan to increase his inventory. His goal for the future is to have a bigger store.
