Carlos Enrique's story

Carlos is a very hardworking person who has succeeded in developing his own business despite the great difficulties life has presented him. Some time ago he became unemployed with no source of income to support his household where he lives with his wife and six children. Seeking a source of income for his home he found the way of setting up his own business selling clothes and personal use items.

For some time now he’s had his own business and his family’s quality of life has improved considerably. Thanks to the good sales the business has his wife has to help him sometimes with it. Carlos is looking for a loan to buy personal use products that he’s been running out of thanks to his sales. His dream is that the business continues to grow and continues allowing him to provide his six children and his wife with a good quality of life and better economic opportunities for progress.
