A loan of $325 helped working capital.


Samuel Antonio's story

Samuel Antonio Martiniz is 47. He has two children who attend school.

His business is renting out Nintendo (video game). He has had this business for over five years. He started with only one television and one video game. But, he was investing his earnings in another television. Also, with help from loans, he was able to get together the money he needed to buy more equipment.

In the Fundación León 2000 he found the opportunity to make his business grow. Through the Fundación he gets help from the partner organizations. The loan is to buy equipment because the video games are now more modern.

Samuel’s dream is to keep improving his home so that his children have a suitable place to live.
