A loan of $650 helped to purchase cosmetics, shampoo, skin cream, cleaning products, and basic grains.


Jimmy Francisco's story

Jimmy, a shopkeeper, lives in Granada where he owns a small general store. He is requesting his first loan to purchase merchandise to stock his store, which will permit him to meet some of his customers’ needs. Now, he wishes to stock his store with new products such as cosmetics, shampoo, skin cream, cleaning products, and basic grains. This will allow him to continue offering variety, attract new customers, and improve his family’s living conditions.
