A loan of $1,625 helped to make improvements to an apartment he owns so he can rent it.

Francisco Antonio's story

Francisco has spent his entire life seeking opportunities to get ahead and achieve independence. He lives with his wife, but their children are grown and have their own families.

Francisco has run a variety of businesses in his career: a restaurant, bars, and cafes. Today, however, he feels he can no longer spend all his time running around, which is a necessity in the food service industry. Francisco is therefore trying to earn a living by renting several properties that he owns.

Francisco is very industrious and tenacious, and says he doesn't like feeling like he's expendable. He is applying for a loan in order to make improvements to the apartments that he currently rents. These renovations will allow him to offer much more to prospective tenants and generate greater interest in the apartments.
