Héctor Mario's story

Héctor is married and father of two children who are 17 and 19 years old. He’s spent a large part of his productive life as a furniture upholsterer and with the experience he acquired opened his own workshop in a very well-located spot in the town he lives in. He became known there by everyone in town and taking advantage of his shop’s good location he decided to organize an display area to sell fabric, glue, cushion-making supplies, supplies, filling, pillows and mattresses among others aiming at generating higher income to support his home.

His drive, experience and dedication have led to his becoming well-known in the sector which is profitable for him since his customers refer him to others and his sales grow this way.

He’s currently asking for the loan to buy supplies at wholesale (fabric, adhesives, foam, filling, paint, cushions, pads, chair-making supplies, etc. to be able to have all the supplies on-hand needed to meet demand and customer needs thus improving the level of income used to support his family.

Héctor would like to continue working hard to reach his goal of owning a point of sales or gallery in his workshop to be able to sell all the items he manufactures for this will allow him to earn higher income that he will be able to use to provide his children with a good university education and will also improve his entire immediate family’s quality of life.
