A loan helped purchase more food inventory for my food stall.
I was raised in Guatemala, where my father passed when I was just 6 years old living my mother to raise 4 of my siblings and myself. She had to find a way to be able to provide for us so she decided to open up a very small grocery where she sold vegetables and meats. I think this is where I got my entrepreneurial spirit, from my mother. Now, my brother is the one who continues to motivate me in being an entrepreneur because he himself has a business. Hi success is higher than mine and I aspire to be as financially secure as him one day. My dream is to obtain property back on my hometown and rent it out so in the future when I retire I could live off collecting the money from my properties and not have to worry financially.
