Hugo Filibeto
Hugo, 40, is an informal clothing merchant. He lives with his wife and children in an urban zone, called Orquídeas, because when it was discovered there were many flowers there and currently there’s a park with these flowers.

He used to work as a Security Guard but his salary wasn’t enough to support his family so he decided to become an informal merchant. Gradually his work grew and profits did too so he decided to continue with this informal clothing and shoes sales activity. He currently works from very early in the morning with his wife’s help. He sells pants for $25.00, shoes for $30.00 and blouses for $5.00 each.

He will use the loan to buy clothes and beauty products to sell to his customers. In the future he’d like to continue to add to his stock and include an additional line of products to sell, like jewelry.
