A loan of $1,600 helped to buy a liquor supply.

Santiago's story

Santiago is twenty-two years old and is an enterprising young man. He has worked at his father's deli for several years, a position that has allowed him to acquire knowledge about administration and purchasing.

Today, he wishes to create his own business, which is why he is requesting a loan. He will invest in the purchase of liquor supplies and upgrading his business premises. He dreams of being independent and generating the necessary income in order to cover his expenses and to pay for his university studies.

He says that this is one of the greatest challenges that he has faced in his life, but he is convinced that with the experience and advice of his family, his business will be around for a long time.
