A loan of $600 helped to purchase perfumes, clothing, furniture, and more.


Arturo's story

Arturo is 71 years old and married to Maria Luisa, who is 66 years old. They work selling furniture, clothing, perfumes, and more at itinerant markets in their area. This is their only source of income, so they want to have the merchandise most requested by their customers. In order to achieve this, they need a loan. Arturo is requesting this loan to purchase a little bit of everything. There are things their customers request that they do not have, so the customer goes to buy them somewhere else. He would like to have variety in his merchandise and products. He will use this loan to purchase everything that he is missing, including perfumes, clothing, furniture, and other items. This will allow him to have more sales and more income.
