A loan of $525 helped to buy staple goods—eggs, cooking oil, pasta, rice, stock, and corn meal—to increase the stock he carries in his home business.


Carlos Antonio's story

Carlos, 36 years old, is married and has three children, two of whom are in elementary school and one of whom is not yet of school age. He has had a business selling staple goods out of his house for more than ten years, and his wife helps him with the business.
He will use this loan to buy staple goods—eggs, cooking oil, pasta, rice, stock, and corn meal—to increase the stock he carries in his home business. His hope for the future is to improve his family's living conditions and offer them a better diet.
