Eddy Santiago's story

Eddy is 25 years old. He is not married and has no children. Eddy started his business, selling very few basic supplies like soda and rice. Eventually, he set up a grocery store attached to his house that supports him. He opens his store every day at 7 a.m.

Eddy wishes to expand his business and be able to stock it with more products. With this loan, he will buy more basic supplies such as rice, sugar, and oil in order to improve his store and his house.
