A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase construction materials like wholesale stone.


Martin Andres's story

Martin is 43 and has three children who are ages twelve, ten, and five. He works selling construction materials like gravel and stone for the outer walls of houses. He has a warehouse located in the Las Retamas area, and this is his first cycle with our institution. Martin is going to use this loan to purchase wholesale stone. The reason why he is requesting this loan is a lack of working capital. He wants to buy wholesale because the price of stone rises this time of year. Martin faces challenges in his business, mainly competition for the area, and he is going to use his profits to reinvest in his business. He wants his business to have more customers so that it generates higher income for him and his children to live more comfortably, since this is his only source of work, which allows him to support his family.
