A loan of $550 helped to buy basic food products for his store.


Carlos Julio's story

Carlos, who is 69 years old, is characterized by being an entrepreneurial man. At his age, he has a great will to work. He affirms that his two children, ages 10 and 7, are his biggest motivation.

Three years ago he set up a store dedicated to the sale of basic food products, with the goal of improving his economic condition and generating a source of income to sustain his household since because of his age, the working world has closed it doors to him.

Now he is in search of a loan with the goal of expanding his portfolio of products and increasing his sales. He hopes that with this investment he can guarantee his family a dignified quality of life and education for his two children.
