A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase staple goods and thus start up his general store.


German Emilio's story

Germán is a great fighter for life. After having worked for many years as an employee, now he wants to have his own business, generating his own resources and progressing together with his family. Looking to improve his working conditions as well as his income, Germán is going to start up a general store in a space connected to his home, where the idea is to offer his customers staple goods. Since Germán doesn't have the sufficient capital to stock the initial products of the store, he is requesting a loan to purchase staple goods, and thus start up his general store.

In this way, he aspires to overcome his financial difficulties, that are more complicated because he is the head of a household with two children. His dream is that his store will be successful.
