Juan Alberto
View original language description ↓
Señor Juan Alberto P. D. has been our client for ten years now, and it’s worth noting that he started in a credit group but later switched to individual loans, receiving 11 since. Juan has four sons, all in elementary school, and his wife works to help pay the bills.

His business is a bicycle shop, which he first started in his father’s house and it was really small. He has reinvested in his business, built his own house, moved the business into his house and now even sells bicycles. He has improved conditions for his family and now has two employees. With the current loan he plans to improve his inventory of bicycle parts.
