Florencio's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me buy a new van to be able to transport my equipment and big tools -such as tall ladders, machines, many paint buckets, etc.- to the sites where I provide my painting services, since my previous one was destroyed in a car crash.
My name is Florencio and I am from Acapulco. I come from a humble and hard-working family of 8 and grew up working from a very young age to help with household expenses. Thanks to that upbringing, I learned the value of hard work and was able to get where I am today in San Jose. I have lived here for the last 29 years with my partner, children, and grandchildren. My dreams for the future are to eventually buy a house and watch my kids go on to have families and homes of their own. Another big thing for me will be to eventually be able to visit my parents in Acapulco, since it has been 29 years since the last time I saw them.
