A loan of $550 helped to buy sweets, toys, and other products to sell.


Carlos Manuel's story

Carlos lives with his wife, who works as a sweets seller. They have a son, who is eleven. Carlos sells various products such as sweets, toys, lamps, glue, children's guitars, balls, and other items. His business is located on the main street, a fact that helps him have many customers, since his wares are in full view of passersby, adults and children alike. Carlos's dearest wish is to improve his business and his sales. This is why he asks for a loan with which to buy more toys, sweets, gifts, and other items to sell.
