A loan of $350 helped to purchase seasonal clothing for the colder weather.

Valentin's story

Sr. Valentín is 31 years old and a hardworking gentleman. He has three children. Valentín is a husband and father who is concerned about providing the best he can for his family.

For the past 12 years, his only source of income was the weekly salary he earned at a factory where he works as an operator. However, his income was insufficient for covering the basic household needs. For this reason, he saw the need to start a business as a way of generating extra income.

Five years ago, he started his business selling secondhand clothing such as shirts, blouses, trousers, skirts, and other items. At the moment, he wants to buy seasonal clothing for his business to accommodate the change in the weather. This will enable him to generate more revenue.
