Clemente Orlando
Clemente Orlando T. E. is 53 years old. He has been operating a welding shop for the past 20 years. It was difficult for him to get started, because this line of business requires a lot of effort. Despite his age, Clemente continues to dedicate himself to his work. His parents were very poor and could not afford to offer him a higher education. However, this did not stop Clemente from getting ahead.

His loan will be used to purchase tools and other supplies. His biggest dream is to attract more customers so that he can generate a higher income for his family to live comfortably.
