A loan helped to acquire a large amount of handbags to bolster his business.


Federico Rafael's story

Federico is a 35 year old man who, since losing his job, began searching for a way to make enough money to maintain his household expenses.

Thanks to a friend, he began selling merchandise; he now makes a living selling women's handbags that have exclusive designs and are not often seen in the market.

Federico has goal and dreams for his life. He hopes to have his own home, a commercial warehouse, employees, and vendors. He sees a big future for his business, and will do what it takes to be successful.

In order to grow his business, Federico is requesting a loan to a large supply of handbags.
