A loan of $600 helped to buy merchandise to re-stock his store.


Samuel's story

Samuel is 27 years old. He has 4-year-old twin sons. He makes a living by selling new children's clothing in a store located in a very busy part of the city of El Alto.

This will be his second loan with this institution. Samuel will use this loan to buy merchandise to re-stock his store. The reason that he requests this loan is that, because of the change of season, he needs to buy new merchandise to re-stock the store and he lacks cash.

Samuel faces challenges in his business, like the location, which is centrally situated but dangerous. There is also a lot of competition nearby and he constantly needs to update his merchandise.

He will use the benefits to purchase more merchandise to stock the store and save money, since his dream for his business is to open another store and expand and grow his business, and also to expand to the city of La Paz.
