A loan of $800 helped to buy liquor, beer, pastries, and sweets.

Elkin Alonso's story

Elkin Alonso, 26, lives in a common-law marriage with his current partner and has a one-year-old child.

He has made a living selling liquor for four years. He set up his own liquor store with which he has managed to earn income to support his family and pay for the household expenses. He's a hardworking and organized man because he devotes a large part of his day to working in his business, making sure he keeps it organized and well stocked so he can provide excellent customer service.

With the loan he's requesting from the board he wants to buy more stock (liquor, beer, pastries, and sweets).

His only goal is to offer his customers a greater variety, keep products available, and consequently increase his level of sales to generate more monthly income. This will allow him to continue watching over his family's welfare and quality of life.
