A loan helped a visionary teenager expand his dream into the success story of a lifetime.
Since I was a little kid, I have asked more than I talk. I always listened to people, informed myself of everything that grabbed my attention. One day, when I was 14 years old, I asked myself "Can I make some money so that I can stop depending from my parents for things that I want and also have fun?" And as a kid that watched a lot of videos on the internet, I noticed that influencers sold merchandise with their names, driving me to an intriguing question, "Can I sell a shirt, hat or pant without my name, like a brand?" Starting with a deep brainstorm and a lot of reading of what I needed to do to start a brand, I came to a conclusion of how the people that surrounded me were, describing them with only 1 word, "RANDOM". It became my goal to see people with a garment that shows how they truly are, empowering them, making them feel comfortable wearing an incredible and random piece of clothing. Also, becoming an entrepreneur at a very young age because it has always been seen as "impossible". I have always been told that without any degree, I would never be someone in life. Now, 4 years later, after my 18th birthday, through the ups and downs my country has passed, personal problems and no capital to invest, I have reconstructed the whole brand to focus on its mission. With a detailed plan, I will do what I was afraid to do, during the many times the business fell, take risks. I have overcome my fear of taking big risks and this is one of them.
