Jorge is 29 years old and has been a businessman for over 6 years. He lives in the city of Coronel Oviedo together with by Mirta and they have a three year old child, for whom they fight hard to give her what she needs for a good life.

He says that he started working from very little. In the past he just worked in an ice cream store as a secretary where he learned everything about making ice cream. About three or so years ago, with the encouragement of his sweetheart, they opened their own ice cream making shop, and thanks to God he has had great success. He now has one location of his own and all of the necessary machines for production, and also he has various distribution freezers in different businesses around the township of Coronel Oviedo.

He is asking for a loan to buy sheets of laminate and rods to expand his ice cream shop, since it is is a growing business and he wants to continue investing in his business, which is a means of helping out his family.
