Gilberto
View original language description ↓
Gilberto is a man who started working with his uncle and father in the taco-selling business when he was very young. This called his attention, and after his father died, he decided to become independent and start his own business to be able to make money to support his mother. Soon after he got married, he had to work more to be able to afford his family's expenses, and most importantly, the costs of his children's education.


Currently, Gilberto is requesting a credit to buy a structure to be able to grow his business. Right now he only has a taco cart, and it doesn't look very presentable. The credit that Gilberto is requesting is $575, to be repaid in 6 months. With this money, Gilberto will be able to buy merchandise to make his products as well as a structure to give a larger presence to his location. With your help, Gilberto will be able to take good care of his kids and to pay for their education so they can be good men.
