A loan of $275 helped to paint his bar.

Juan Guillermo's story

Guillermo’s a 43-year-old single man with no children. He currently works tending to his business, a bar he opened about 18 months ago. Though having no experience in this activity he’s managed it well and has gained experience and knowledge simply because economic need motivated him to become independent and seek options to get ahead. In addition, he complements the bar business with fast-food sales to increase his profits.

He’s requesting the loan to do some site improvements because he must do some improvements to the locale and to paint it to improve its image and attract more customers that way that will increase sales and thus his profits. In this way he will continue striving to reach his dream of having his business in a site of his own that will lead him to have better quality of life.
