A loan of $500 helped to buy pasta, bread, sauce, snacks, and juice.


Jose Orlando's story

José lives with his family. His wife and two children, ages 12 and 14, depend on him. He has been running a store for eight years. He learned about this business from his family. He works from Monday to Sunday. His advantage is that the business is located in his house.

José needs to invest in his business by buying merchandise to stock the store with a variety of types of pasta, bread, sauce, snacks, and juice, among other products. This will increase his merchandise and his business will be stocked in order to make more sales.

José's aspirations are to have better stability in his life, to have a better income, and to continue working for his family.
