Jorge's story

Jorge is 32 years old. He is married to Dina, age 23. They live in a house that his parents gave them, together with their little daughter Luz, who is 5 years old. Jorge is a responsible man; he works in agriculture, and thanks to the earnings from his harvests, he was able to open a neighborhood store for his wife, who is happy serving their customers. In the store, they sell soft drinks, snacks and some groceries as well as cleaning products. This business was started 6 months ago, and during this time they have obtained a good customer base and good earnings.

Jorge's greatest desire is to keep the business growing, adding one more set of shelves and a display case, so that the products will be more visible. With this loan, he will be able to buy some products to make the store nice and presentable and to keep attracting customers' attention. This is his first loan, and he is happy about the support being provided to him, since thanks to it he will be able to improve his business.

With the 1,500 new soles, he will stock up on cases of cookies and various brands of soft drinks.
