A loan of $1,000 helped to buy merchandise and furniture to accomodate it.


Rodolfo's story

Mr. M. has been a merchant all his life. Today, he has a small grocery store. He lives with his grandson, who helps him with the business. "We share responsibilities. It's a great help to me that he stays with me. I want to improve my business, to buy merchandise and furniture to accomodate it. I am asking for $1,000.00."
