Juan works selling goods of many kinds but primarily sells furniture. He started working thirty years ago selling bags and did this until he could earn the capital to start a business selling furniture. With time he was able to purchase 2 trucks and 2 motorcycles that today help him with his daily work. Juan said with pride that, although he could only study until the 6th grade, today he is a successful merchant who makes a good income and can support his family with his sales.
With this loan Juan hopes to be able to buy more merchandise in order to meet the demand of his customers, and to further expand his business.
