A loan of $1,400 helped to buy shelving and fruits and vegetables.


Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge began working when he was 14 years old as an assistant in a mini market and this is how he was able to learn the trade. He then worked in a cafeteria for 4 years and during this time, he began to save as much as he could so that he could one day be independent. Four months ago, he was able to achieve this goal and has had good customers since.By working hard, he has been able to overcome the difficulties of not having enough capital. Because he wants to offer a wider variety of vegetables to his customers, as they have asked, he believes his sales will increase considerably. Jorge is looking for a loan in order to purchase shelving and vegetables and fruits to stock his business and offer a wider selection. His dream is to be successful in his own business and to grow it enough to generate employment and in the future open his own mini market.
