A loan helped to buy cell phones.


Edwin Antonio's story

Every morning Edwin prepares to go sell cell phones in the streets. He has three children in high school and a wife, and works to support them and provide them a better quality of life. Twelve years ago he started in the world of business, selling shoes. From that job he saved enough money to begin celling mobile phones. With this product he has generated greater earnings and has been able to pay for his children's schooling.

Edwin dreams of continuing to grow as a professional. For that reason he seeks a loan to buy cell phones, as he wants to expand to neighboring towns, to increase his sales and earnings. This will allow him to improve his business and continue providing his family a better quality of life. At 39 years old he considers himself at his peak to move forward.
