Walter Nelson's story

Walter is 41 years old. He works as a tailor and has made all types of clothing for more than 20 years. He works every day Monday through Sunday because he has a lot of customers, since he is the only tailor in the area where he lives. With the earnings he is able to support his family and give them everything they need. He lives with his wife and one daughter.

Walter is asking for the loan to buy the materials that he uses, such as: needles, thread, measuring tape, and more. This way, he can give his family a better quality of life, since he doesn't have any other source of income.
