A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a lot of stock (fizzy drinks, cakes and general groceries).


José Javier's story

José is a hard-working and enterprising single man. He started his shop 10 years ago with a small budget but it has continued to grow steadily.

His dream is to extend his shop and buy a wide variety of stock (fizzy drinks, cakes and general groceries), which is why he has approached the board to ask for a loan. He will use this to make part of his dream come true and will buy stock wholesale, which will give him discounts and better profits.

By doing this José will be able to offer a better and more varied range of products to his neighbours and the people who have become his friends after so many years as customers. His income will increase and he will enjoy a better quality of life.
