He has been buying and selling stuff his whole life and has been selling general merchandise from his home for a number of years. Andrés sells sandals, cosmetics, talcum powder, disposable razors, bath soap, toilet paper, sanitary towels, shampoo, creams, etc. This business is his source of income and he puts all the time he needs to into it.

Andrés has decided to request a second loan for 20,000 lempiras to buy products and stock his business. He will buy sandals, cosmetics, personal care products and personal hygiene products. This loan will help him to increase his sales and his income. His goal is to expand his market so that he can increase his sales.
