Deimy Antonio's story

Deimy has always described himself as a hardworking, honest and honorable man. Life has taught him that with effort and dedication he can achieve big things. Although he has a small business today, he has dreams of grandeur: of being the best businessman in the area, generating employment, and making a radical change to his life.

Deimy works making and selling handicrafts. He needs a loan to buy caña flecha [fiber from a plant similar to a palm], and fertilizers and manure for his crops. This will help him improve many aspects of his business which, due to a lack of investment, has been decaying a bit.

With the loan Deimy will be able to achieve greater competitiveness and better prices. He will attract more customers and obtain higher profits in his sales by buying merchandise in larger quantities, meaning more discounts. Deimy's dream is to have his own house, to have a happy life, and to have the tranquility of waking up and having a source of income to feed his family.
