El Salvador / Grocery Store

A loan of $600 helped to buy new display cabinets.


Roberto Carlos's story

Roberto lives with his parents and one brother, and is single without any children. He runs a store that sells basic products and this business has helped him generate income for his household. It began with his father from whom it was inherited so that he continues investing and developing it in the community.

He is requesting a loan to invest in improvements for the shop as it has old equipment (display cabinet) that he wants to upgrade. The loan will provide him with financial resources so that he can manage to carry out the business' modernization and attract new clients with a new image.

His objective is to increase merchandise in order to install a mini supermarket; thus his dream is to grow in business.
