Gabino
Gabino is married and has four children, ages 30, 28, 25 and 14. He started his convenience store in 1990. He worked for the defense department and for his job had to be away from the city for long periods. His wife and kids ran the business while he was away to help settle family and school expenses. In 1997, Gabino dedicated himself full-time to his store and purchased a copier, a refrigerator for drinks and milk products, and a counter in order to offer a better-quality service to his customers, and now the business is growing.


With the new acquisitions he has made to improve the store, Gabino doesn't have the capital to invest in merchandise, and he is asking for a $925 loan to meet this objective and help his business grow. He needs your help and appreciates whatever support you can offer.
