A loan of $775 helped to buy stock wholesale (rice, oil, dairy products, fizzy drinks, beer and other items).


Joaquin Mauricio's story

Joaquin, 38, is driven and hard-working and is the owner of a grocery shop. This is situated on the access road of the area where he lives, so there is a large number of people passing every day and this benefits his business sales. He also has no competition nearby, which guarantees him a permanent source of income, however small it may be.

Joaquin will use the requested loan to buy stock wholesale (rice, oil, dairy products, fizzy drinks, beer and other items). This will enable him to stock his shop with a wider range of products and so satisfy the tastes and requirements of his customers. This will significantly improve his sales and income.

Joaquin says his main wish is to be able to improve his family's quality of life (he has a wife and 3 children) and to establish his business in the long term. This will provide an income which will give him financial stability so he can give his children a better education.
