A loan of $575 helped to buy shelving.

Baldomero's story

Baldomero, 55, has won the hearts of all his neighbors because of his friendliness and his good sense of humor. He loves his family, which is his main motivation to fight everyday and generate the support to survive. Although he didn't have the resources to start his own business, this did not stop him from achieving his dream of becoming a businessman. With a little money lent to him by a friend, this man started selling fruit and fish at a table that he set up outside his house, with posters to promote his products. He has been doing this work for a year. His dreams don't stop, and this is why he is applying for a loan that he will use to buy shelves where he can put his products to make them more visible and more attractive to his customers. He hopes to improve his economic standing and not worry about money in his old age, guaranteeing his family a better future.
