A loan of $500 helped to buy rice, beans, sugar, salt, candy, and cleaning products.


Edwin Efrain's story

Edwin is 45 years old, single, and lives with his mother who is 65 years old. He has a store in order to get ahead and earn income. He works every day and learned this trade from his relatives. He has done this for five years. The loan he requested will help him to buy a variety of merchandise for his store: basic food products such as rice, beans, sugar, salt, candy, and cleaning products. This investment will help to increase his inventory and better his income. His dream is to offer a better quality of life for his relatives and to further strengthen his business.
