Milton's story

Milton, 35, is a good and hardworking man with a very good business vision. He's married and has three children who live with him in his own house.

Milton's job is selling food products such as rice, sugar, eggs, milk, detergent, grains, animal feed, and other things. He does his work in the store he has set up in a space in his house. He has done this work for two years with the help of his wife.

In the beginning it was a little complicated for him because he didn't have any experience in this business. In time he learned, however, and now he has the necessary standards to keep his customers happy. Sometimes he supplements his work by buying and selling cattle.

What he likes about his job is the continuity of sales and how regularly his customers shop. When he has free time he does other things in his home.

Currently he'll request 2000 soles [PEN]. He's grateful about receiving financial help that allows him to get ahead with his business.

With the requested amount he'll buy more food products such as rice, oil, milk, and other things.
