Sotero's story

Sotero is married to Marciana. They have five children and they try their best to be able to give them everything they need to continue to grow. Sotero works as a “macatero” (street vendor) selling products such as hammocks, bedspreads, and quilts door-to-door. He has been engaged in this activity for over twenty years. Through his dedication to the trade, he earned very good profits that enabled him support and help his family. He is a hardworking person who strives to succeed. He is requesting this loan to purchase blankets, hammocks, and other general items for the business. He has many orders because he works with other “macateros” in the area that bring him their products to sell in various parts of the country.
