A loan of $400 helped to buy items such as pasta, soap, snacks, soft drinks, juice, sweets, bread, oil, rice and eggs.


Juan Carlos's story

Juan doesn't have much produce left to sell to customers in his shop, so is asking for a new loan to invest in buying items such as pasta, soap, snacks, soft drinks, juice, sweets, bread, oil, rice and eggs. This will enable him to stock what his customers ask for in his business.

His previous loan helped him at the time to widen the variety of goods in his business. His customers increased and his profitability improved somewhat. Through this, he was able to pay off his loan and also provide his family with a more dignified way of life.
