A loan of $2,675 helped to buy supplies and remodel his store to make it more appealing to his customers.


Angel Manuel's story

Angel is a 25 year-old who has a lot of responsibilities, including raising his two little ones who are both under the age of 5. He works providing a variety of products to his customers in the neighborhood, who are farmers by nature. There are not many places nearby that offer these services. Angel is the owner of one of the few general stores that operate in the area. He has to ensure that he has all of the supplies that his customers need, such as groceries, meats, dairy products, and other items. His customers have to travel long distances if they can't find something they need at his store. This is why Angel is requesting a loan to stock up and recondition his store, because the visual aspect is important, and he wants to make his store the best it can be within his budget. In the future, he plans to be the owner of a chain of stores throughout the city.
