Fernando is married; his wife is a homemaker and they have 2 children who are 6 and 4, respectively. He has always been a hard worker, someone who started at an early age helping his family with their clothing business and contributing his earnings to them from the time he was 15. When he married, his expenses increased and he had to strike out on his own to build a business that would support his own family. With the help of his father, he started his own clothing-sales business and his wife helped him in her spare time. His business has grown little by little but he wants to continue to grow in order to give his young children a good education and a better quality of life.

Fernando is asking for a US$750 loan to buy merchandise for his business so that he can continue to grow it. He offers to repay the loan in 6 months. He and his family are very grateful for the support you are providing to help them get ahead.
