Nelson Timoteo
Nelson, who is 42 years old, is a good person, is responsible and of good moral character. He lives with his wife and three young children. Nelson owns his own sewing workshop, where he works as a tailor, manufacturing men's and boys' formal trousers and shirts. Nelson would like to expand his business by taking on more work. To produce more clothing, he will need more raw materials, which is why he is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan to buy fabric, buttons and thread, amongst other things. Nelson is convinced that this will enable him to increase his profits and allow him and his family to have a stable life.
