Ricardo's story

Ricardo is a 45 year old father of two girls ages 6 and 12. He dreams about being able to offer a better quality of life for his children as well as to provide all the love that his girls were not able to receive from their mother. Ricardo learned the trade of dressmaking thanks to his mother that used to be a dressmaker. He has been manufacturing women's underwear in his workshop, which is located at home, in order to reduce overhead costs. His biggest dream is to consolidate his business creating jobs. Ricardo is currently seeking a credit for the purchase of raw materials and supplies such as fabric, thread and needles, because he expects the demand for his products to increase during the year-end season
