A loan of $850 helped to purchase clothes to re-sell.

Gilberto Antonio's story

Gilberto is 54 years old, and he engages in selling clothe in the city center of Medellín, Colombia. He works seven days a week from 8 am to 7 pm, as this activity is his only source of income. He is currently requesting a loan to buy products in order to increase his sales during the end of the year season. His biggest challenge has been providing for his 21-year-old son, as many time his job does not give his the income he needs and at time he feels strangled by the lack of economic resources. His biggest dreams are to succeed in having a well-supplied activity and to offer a more dignified life to his family.
