A loan of $825 helped to buy sheets, footwear and other goods.


Raul's story

Raúl is 28, and has been married to Sandra for 26 years. They live in their own house. He has been a travelling salesman for more than ten years, and is also a photographer--work that his wife also does. They have a seven-year-old child, who is the reason they both work very hard.

Raúl was working for two years in Argentina, and after he got some capital, financed his own small business. He sold handicrafts first, and later, a variety of products. Raúl is very self-sacrificing, as he does his selling door-to-door, covering several kilometers a day. Nowadays he has a regular clientele, because of his good service and the good quality of his products.

He is applying for the loan in order to buy footwear and sheets, enabling him to stock up, and have more variety to offer his customers.
