A loan of $525 helped to stock his store.


Francisco Antonio's story

Francisco has a grocery store in his home and has had it for a year. He started this business because he saw a great opportunity because there was not another one in this area and this is what he likes to do. He is asking for a loan of 21,000 pesos in order to buy more consumables and other electrical items to sell in his store. This will help him provide better customer service to those who visit him daily. In the future he wants to grow the business and be able to offer a greater variety of products. Francisco lives in San Cristobal, a city located in the south part of the country. He lives with his wife and four children, ages 8, 7, 4, and 2. His two oldest children attend the local public school and he is certain that this loan will help him grow his income and improve his family’s quality of life.
