A loan of $1,000 helped to buy stock merchandise for his store.

José Ángel's story

José, 59, has a spouse and three children. He has worked managing his own store for 20 years. He learned this business because he had neither a profession nor a job which is why he opted for this means of earning family income. The store is located at home which is in the center of his community so residents buy there instead of going all the way to the city. To buy his supplies he must pay a pick-up truck to take him to the city to buy everything he needs for the store.

The loan he’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy two quintals of sugar, two small barrels of oil, 100 pounds of beans, four quintals of corn among other basic staple items. In this way, he’ll be able to meet customer needs having a variety of goods on hand in larger amounts to sell more and earn higher income which will make it possible for his store to be larger.
