Ricardo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy new inventory to keep distributing toys and candies in the Bay Area.

Ricardo's story

I am from Michoacán, Mexico and I came to the United States with my family more than 10 years ago. I can say that my family has always been hard-working and has always looked for the best alternatives to achieve any goal, always thinking about our happiness. I am a proud father of 5 wonderful children. My wife works with me in this business from day one giving me ideas and managing distribution and customer relations. My next challenge is to open a new business in the future and continue working in this industry for a longer time.
