A loan of $500 helped to buy school supplies and provisions.

Hector Manuel's story

Héctor lives in the city of Estelí with his wife and his two young children. He makes a living with a small grocery store in his house, which is located in a good place where thanks to God he has managed to get ahead.

He got his first loan to buy products such as rice, sugar, and oil. He needs this new loan to buy school supplies, basic grains, rice, sugar, oil, beans, and soda.

He says that since he received his first loan his life has improved a lot because with what he invested his business has grown. Also, with the profits, he has made improvements to his house, which before was made of wood and now he made it of concrete.

He's happy and he knows this new loan means a big injection of capital for his business. His goal for the future is to have his house completely built. His next goal is to expand his business.
