A loan of $300 helped to buy salt, sugar, beans, oil, biscuits and snacks.


Margarito's story

Margarito has a shop: He lives with his wife and their three children, who are aged 17, 14 and 10 years old all whom work in the shop. Everybody takes a turn as the shop is open from 6am until 7pm and they all learned what to do on the job. This loan will help Margarito to buy items such as salt, sugar, beans, oil, biscuits and snacks to stock up the business. It will also allow him to compete with more shops and so acquire better products. Margarito wants to provide his children with a good education so that they develop academically. He also wants to expand the business.
