Jorge Luis
Jorge Luis is 35 years old and for more than 12 years has made a living in transportation. He has always liked the business because for a long time he looked for a way to increase his income to provide for his family. Jorge's level of competition is very high, but they don't offer the care and enthusiasm like he does, and his clients are pretty stable as well. He is requesting the loan to purchase tires and parts for his truck. His wish is to have more trucks to generate more work and income and thus improve his quality of life.
