Rufino, a very good person, is 51 years old. He lives in his own house. As a very small child he began with his sales because he liked selling. He began selling used clothing in a market. With the earnings that those sales generated, he was able to finish building his house and buy more clothing, but this time not used clothing, but rather new. He currently has two stores of new clothing. He is very grateful to the foundation, because through the credits that it has granted to him, he has been able to grow economically and have more merchandise. He is asking for this loan to buy more new, wholesale clothing and to have new designs in shirts and suits for boys and girls.
