A loan of $550 helped to buy personal care products to fill his customers' orders.


Hector Santiago's story

Hector Santiago, 19, is a young entrepreneur who has decided to find his own income source so that he can contribute to his household, relieve his parents' financial difficulties, and pay for his university courses. He learned how to sell personal care products watching other salespeople in the field. He started his own business about 6 months ago and works hard at it every day. Though he started his business with few resources, his effort has allowed him to prosper and receive many customer orders. He is, therefore, requesting a loan to buy personal care products to fill his customers' orders. He dreams of having a big business with many customers that will allow him to earn more income to contribute to his parents ,so that their life is better, and to be able to pay for his university studies.
