A loan of $1,100 helped purchase a variety of wholesale soft drinks.

Cristian Camilo's story

Cristian is a 21 year old young man who after completing high school started working as a beverage distributor, tasked with delivering orders to customers. He has worked this job for three years and it is his primary source of income, which he uses to cover expenses for the home he shares with his mother. Cristian is very energetic, active, and enterprising, and he works very hard to achieve his goals.

One goal is to start his own business, distributing soft drinks for a brand with worldwide recognition, and the owner and boss of the distributor for whom he currently works is willing to lend him the space to warehouse his products. This is the motivation for seeking the loan, which will be used to purchase soft drinks at wholesale price in a variety of sizes and flavors. He will be able to take advantage of the brand's name recognition and customer demand, and thus be able to earn greater income and continue managing the household expenses. Cristian dreams of one day taking his business completely independent, financing it so that it is profitable and allows him to provide his mother a greater wellbeing and quality of life.
