A loan of $1,300 helped to buy products for his store at wholesale (snacks, cookies, sweets, dairy products, meat products, and other items).

Luis Alberto's story

Luis, 60, is an unassuming and charming man who has become known in his neighborhood for the good service that he provides in his business. He has a grocery store that he started about 15 years ago in order to generate the income he needed to support his household. He learned this business on the job, and he gradually acquired experience through trial and error. Now he is supported by his wife, and he works from 7am until 9pm.

At this time, he is requesting a loan to stock up his store at wholesale, purchasing snacks, cookies and crackers, sweets, dairy products, meat products, and other items. This way, he will have a greater variety of items available to satisfy the tastes and needs of his customers, especially at the end of the year, when sales tend to increase. This will give him financial benefits so that he can continue to meet the needs of his household.

"My age is not an impediment to continue working, as I still have the energy and motivation to strive for my family's well-being," states Luis. He dreams of making his business more profitable and more well-known so that he can keep it going over time. This way, in the future, he can enjoy time with his wife, a better quality of life, and a tranquil old-age.
