A loan of $575 helped to purchase grocery supplies and restock his business with products that are running low.

Juan Guillermo's story

Juan Guillermo is a young man of 24 who started working in a general store many years ago, since his older brother had one and taught him how to work so he could generate his own income. After many years of working with his brother, he left to go work on his own to try to make things better, and in this way he could earn more income to pay for his education. Thanks to his store currently having strong sales, his family has been able to overcome big financial hurdles, and his parents' health problems have also been improving. Even so, at the moment he is still facing a big problem and does not have enough money to stock his store. It is for this reason he is requesting a loan to purchase grocery supplies and stock his store with products that are already running low. His dream is to able to increase his income to overcome the difficult financial situation at home and also improve his parents' health. He also hopes to be able to hire a much-needed employee at the store.
