Medellín, Colombia / General Store

A loan of $1,650 helped to buy products for the family shopping basket.


Gonzalo's story

In search of alternative ways to generate income that would permit him to sustain his home and cover the education of his three children, 55-year-old Gonzalo turned to his experience as a merchant and chose to undertake the creation of his own business dedicated to selling products for the family shopping basket.

Today his store is positioned in the sector and he wants to remain a pioneer in the market. For this reason, he is requesting a loan that will be invested in the purchase of products that his customers constantly ask for.

His biggest dream is to continue growing and to convert his business into a grand supermarket.
