A loan of $775 helped to buy groceries to stock up his store.

Rafael's story

Rafael is a 25-year-old young man, is single, and lives in Sololá. He is a person who works together with his parents to support each other in order to improve the financial situation of his family. He currently makes a living through selling groceries at a store in the market in his community. He began this work with his father eight years ago when he saw that the profits from this business were good.

Now at this time of year he has seen the demand from the customers increase because there are products that he does not sell but that the customers request for their consumption. In this way he wishes to invest more capital in his business with a loan of 6,000.00 quetzales to buy more groceries and have a variety to be able to offer his customers. His dream is to have another grocery store with his family in order to continue improving their living conditions.
