A loan of $1,350 helped to buy merchandise.

Ismael's story

Ismael has had his hardware business selling construction products for more than eight years. Ismael's a native of this city and has four children in his care. Three of them attend school and his older daughter helps him attend to the business when he has to leave to buy merchandise or deliver orders.

He's requesting a loan to invest in buying merchandise. He wants to have more products to sell wholesale and he doesn't want to reduce the value of his business.

Part of the profit from his business will be to repay the loan, because it's a source of income for his family.

He wants to increase his business and have more income. With this investment his business will have more customers and he'll be able to have the products they need to improve their homes. He also wants to begin offering his customers construction services.
