A loan of $850 helped to purchase more merchandise so he can meet the demand by stocking up.


Sergio's story

Sérgio is married and has two children, one of whom attends school. He lives in a house that he owns. Aside from his family, he also supports his five siblings who live with him. He has been a vendor (he sells soft drinks, rice, cornflour and other household staples) for over nine years. With the current loan for 25,000mt he intends to purchase more merchandise so he can meet the demand by stocking up. His dreams are to increase turnover in his business and acquire a vehicle to make it easier for him to transport the merchandise. His main challenge is the lack of funds for investing in his business.
