Martin's story

Martin previously worked as an employee, but since the income he earned there was insufficient to cover his household expenses, he decided to start his own business. Now he has the opportunity to generate more income and little by little begin to overcome the lack of capital he is experiencing in his home. He started his general store, where he offers his customers staple products, a while ago. Despite the fact that he started his business with very little capital, his effort has helped him to overcome great difficulties and continue to help his family get ahead. Thanks to his store, his wife and children’s quality of life has improved considerably. For this reason, he continues to look to improve sales so he can continue to have a better quality of life and offer his children a better quality education. Martin is looking to overcome his lack of capital. He is requesting a loan to purchase staple products and to stock his store so he can improve sales.

His dream is open a mini supermarket, continuing his trade, so he can continue to provide for his family.
