Brandon Andres's story

Brandon, 20, is a good-hearted young man, responsible, who strives every day to get his business ahead. He sells backpacks that he makes on order, and through this activity he's able to earn some money to help with the expenses of his humble household.

Brandon wants to continue with this work as it has become the main source of income for his home. For this reason, he is seeking help to buy basic supplies and an embroidery machine. He thus looks forward to increasing production.
