A loan of $800 helped to buy stock merchandise at wholesale.


Rafael Andrés's story

Rafael, 24, is a young entrepreneur who works in his own business, a cafeteria and deli that he started after having worked with his mother selling tamales and selling pigs by the kilo. Thanks to these activities he was able to save up and set up his own establishment. His spirit of progress and drive have allowed him to carry out his projects and he’s attained them getting very good results. He uses income earned to help his mother with household expenses.

He’s asking for a loan to buy stock at wholesale (soft-drinks, packaged snacks, fried foods and beer, among others) which will make it possible for him to have a variety of products available to satisfy customer wants and needs thereby significantly improving income that will be earmarked for household expenses.

Rafael only wants to strengthen and make his micro business well-known to generate employment opportunities and manage his own enterprise to enjoy the fruits of his labors in the medium run.
