A loan of $475 helped to buy clothing and fill the large purchase orders placed by his customers.


Cristian Danilo's story

Cristian is a hardworking 20 year-old young man who started his business selling clothing 8 months ago, with the goal of obtaining the resources to pay for his university studies. Since he comes from a family of limited economic means, he was obligated to find work so that he will be able to earn his own income and in this way hope to be able to save enough money to pay the university.

Thanks to the fact that he knows a lot of people, his neighbors, relatives and friends, Cristian’s sales have been very good. Nevertheless, because he does not have much capital he is not able to fulfill orders that overwhelm his economic capacity to stock his business. Consequently, he is looking for a loan to purchase clothing and fill the large orders he has from his customers.

Cristian’s greatest dream is for his business to succeed and someday to own his own place where he can sell clothing. As well, he dreams of providing his parents a better quality of life and of being able to pay for his university studies.
