A loan of $475 helped to buy merchandise to stock his grocery store.

Clemente's story

Clemente is an older person who has a grocery store. He has invested a lot of his time and dedication in it so that in the future it can be a support for his wife, his daughter and his grandson that he loves so much. Lamentably, his six year old grandson has an illness called cancer. Both the medication and the treatments for the disease are very expensive. He helps his only daughter with his grandson's expenses.

That is why Clemente is asking our institution for help to keep expanding his grocery store. This loan will be the second one that he has had with us. The first one was to add on to the space where he has his store, but this one is to buy more merchandise, since with so many expenses lately he hasn't been able to buy the necessary merchandise to supply his customers and thus have more earnings. Clemente really wants to have savings to continue his grandson's treatments so he will lack for nothing during this sad time.
