Medellín, Colombia / General Store

A loan of $1,600 helped to buy stock merchandise at wholesale and to replace some of the fixed assets that need to be.


Evelio's story

Evelio has spent a great part of his life working in agriculture and a few years ago opened a grocery store and hostel on a very busy road in one of the districts in the east part of the city. By alternating both activities he’s been able to generate income sufficient for his permanent support.

He’s a charismatic, persevering man who is dedicated to his work and despite obstacles that have arisen always seeks ways to overcome them and continue moving forward. He’s motivated to request this loan to buy stock merchandise at wholesale (packaged snacks, soft-drinks, cookies and crackers, grains, dairy products, sweets, etc.) and to replace some of his fixed assets that are in poor condition.

This will ensure his continued operation and provide the establishment with a renewed appearance leading to increased sales and income earned from his work. In this way, Evelio will continue striving to reach his dream of owning a delicatessen in one of the city’s popular neighborhoods that will make it possible for him to enjoy favorable economic stability and better well-being.
