A loan of $900 helped to buy bed sheets, blankets, shoes, and other items to later sell.

Aurelio's story

Aurelio, 42, lives with Blanca and has 4 children. He has been working as a retailer for more than 15 years, and he sells all types of items including: shoes, clothing, bed sheets and comforters. He makes his sales directly and also through advance orders in the neighborhoods surrounding the city.

Because he has been doing this work for years, he has formed a well-defined clientele, who visit on an ongoing basis depending on the neighborhood where he is working. One of his plans is to expand so that he can travel to more areas than the ones he already frequents.

He is requesting a loan to buy bed sheets, blankets, clothing, shoes and other items to later sell. With this loan, he will be able to stock up his business and fulfill his customer's orders. He thanks the Fundación for the opportunity that they are providing him.
