A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothes.

Nehemias Gamaliel's story

Nehemias, 32, has a spouse and a son. He’s been a merchant for 18 years; he’s sold shoes since he was 14 years of age but he’d now like to expand the business and add other products like various styles of clothes for children, young adults and adults.

The loan he’s asking Fundación Campo is to buy 10 dozen blouses, 6 dozen pants for young adults, 5 dozen pants for youth, 5 dozen pants for children, 2 dozen shorts, 2 dozen juvenile shirts and 2 dozen children’s shirts. With this investment he’ll buy more merchandise to increase trade since he sells the merchandise in various towns and his wife helps him sell.

His vision is that his business grows and to have various things to offer his customers. He has a sales stand in town and on Wednesdays sells in a city and also goes out to various towns to sell his merchandise more quickly and earn higher profits. He’s a responsible, hardworking man who strives to give adequate living conditions to his family and hopes that with this investment in his business will be able to have better quality of life.

His wish is to continue growing and discover new zones where he can sell his merchandise and to have new customers to have wider coverage and higher profits.
