Leopoldo's story

Leopoldo, 36 years old, is a hardworking man. He owns the home where he lives with his partner Martha, 30 years old, and their 3 dear children, to whom they promise to provide a good education. Leopoldo works a lot. He tries to be outstanding in his job. He sells groceries (grains, vegetables, canned goods, drinks, etc.). His shop is well visited by his customers. His sales begin very early and he is ready to receive his first customers. What he likes best about his job is talking with his customers, and that is one of the skills he uses to attract more customers. He has had his business for 12 years and feels that the hardest part of his job is traveling 1.5 hours from his community to stock up on merchandise. With this loan he will purchase more products for his business so he will be stocked with groceries. This is his 7th loan. He feels like the loan will help him make progress with his business and he will make his payments as scheduled. With the 2,000 new soles that he is requesting, he will purchase grains, vegetables, and drinks, among other items.
