Elias
Elias lives in San Juanito, Chihuahua with his three beautiful children aged 9, 15, and 19 years of age. He started his business in clothing sales when he could not find a job. At the beginning he sold clothes by going door to door and with time he was able to earn his own clientele. Today his sales have increased and his clients are now going to his door looking for his business. For Elias his business is primarily important since it is his only source of income, but with it he has been able to support his family.

He requires a loan of $1000USD to buy merchandise so that he will be able to increase his sales, which is especially important during this holiday season when demand is so high. Elias plans to repay his loan in 6 to 12 months. He wishes to thank you for your support and for your generosity.
