G.s Esfuerzo Y Voluntad Group's story

Andrés is 58 years old and has one child who is still dependent on him. Andrés lives with his wife and he makes a living from his business. He has had a grocery store for six years now and this is how he earns his income.

Andrés has very good customers because his business is the only one of its type in the area. His main customers are the locals living here. He is applying for a loan to buy cheese, firewood, corn, sugar, butter, cold meat, meats, beans, milk, eggs and salt to stock up his store and so satisfy customers' demands.

Andrés' dream is to have a room better set up for his business and to give his family a better quality of life.

Together with the other members of his group, Andrés hopes that the loan will contribute to better and improved stock in order to satisfy the demands of his customers. At the same time he hopes to increase his income so as to cover household costs and other financial obligations.

Norma makes a living fattening up chickens and laying hens.
