A loan of $450 helped to buy tables and chairs.

Diego Mauricio's story

Diego is 30 years old and always wanted to be a small businessman because his main avocation is business. He says that it’s a difficult path and that on occasions he lost money because of a lack of experience. It could take him years to recover. “There are many things in life that one must be prepared to lose or win, but one must always have knowledge and discipline if success is what one is after.” With these words Diego tells us the risks of investing in a business.

Two years ago he decided to open a restaurant where he is beginning to break even, so he wants to make an investment so that he can offer better service and increase his sales. He is asking for this loan to buy three sets of tables, chairs, and supplies.
