Silvio's story

Silvio is 37 years old and has been married to Fatima for 9 years. They have two children together, Axel and Milena, and live in the city of Coronel Oviedo. Silvio has been working in sales for more than 11 years now. He started as a street vendor with small boxes of knit tops, t-shirts, shorts, hosiery, toys, cosmetics, and other products. His business grew from this small start. Now he has his business in a very strategic location in the city, which is very busy. His spouse Fatima works there, while he continues to work as a traveling salesman in his own vehicle, with a good amount of products. He says that the work is very demanding but that it is worth the effort, since it is in this way that he was able to get his own home and support his family. He is asking for this loan to invest it in buying knit tops, t-shirts, shorts, hosiery, toys, cosmetics, and other products, so that he continues having a good variety of products to offer his customers.
