Tomas is a Kubo Financiero client and this is his story.
Hi my name is Tomas, I am 36 years old, have been married for 8 years but don´t have sons. I sell women's clothes in flea markets, usually working 5 days a week from 7 am to 6 pm. I will use the loan for inventory, by having more product variety I can increase sales. I have been doing this work for the last 20 years and fortunately have been able to grow the business, achieve some financial stability and pay my debts on time.
My biggest accomplishments are buying my apartment, a car and a piece of land. My next goal is building a house.
