Atilano Emilio's story

Emilio is 47 years old. He lives with his wife and their two children. For the past 15 years he has sold merchandise such as watches, perfumes, hair irons, speakers, etc., which has provided him with income to support his family. He is hard-working and dedicated, but a lack of financial resources has put him through difficult situations. Nevertheless, this doesn't stop him from continuing to fight for what he loves, and his children are his main motivation. He is requesting a loan that he will invest in the purchase of merchandise (perfumes, watches, hair irons and hair dryers, electronic accessories) with the goal of offering more selection to his customers and obtaining enough money to support his family. Emilio dreams of growing his business and increasing sales so that he can save money to purchase a home in order to offer his family more wellbeing, a better quality of life, and a good education for his children.
