A loan of $1,200 helped to buy goods for his store.


Alcides's story

Alcides, 28, is married to Maria, 28, and they have two children, one who is two years old and another who is seven and attends school. Alcides owns a store which he and his wife run. He also has a truck and sells and delivers eggs, noodles and different types of sweets.

He is requesting a loan to buy goods such as drinks, rice, sugar, noodles, herbs, eggs and sweets on a wholesale basis. This will allow him to buy at a lower cost to increase his profit margin. He is grateful for this opportunity to expand his business.
