Gerardo Antonio's story

Gerardo is a very hardworking person who struggles mightily to be able to move his family forward and offer them a better quality of life. He’s had a general store for some time now where he offers his customers basic staples thus generating income needed to cover expenses at home where he lives with his wife and three children. Because a few months ago he had a serious health problem his business remained closed for a long time but now that he’s recovered he can once again start to generate household income. Gerardo is looking for financing to buy basic staples to stock his store because he has very little available inventory. In this way, Gerardo will be able to overcome the great economic difficulty his family currently has because he hadn’t been able to generate income for some time. His dream is to be able to have better quality of life for his family and better opportunities to make economic progress.
