My name is Eloy, I live in Iztapalapa, one of the eastern boroughs of Mexico City.
I am 31 years old and have been married for 9 years with my wife, Hortencia. I have 4 sons, ages 12,9, 6 and an older one that is 21 years old (from my wife previous marriage, but that I consider like my own son).
For the last 9 years, I have dedicated my life to working with the idea of providing a better future for my family, I know that is a step by step process, but in the end it is for my kids future.
I own a business that is called Azulejos Iztlahuacan. I work with my wife, we sell tiles, blinds, bath sets, etc. My wife sells in our store and I do the installation in our clients homes. We have been in business for 9 years.
I consider myself credit worthy, because I always pay my loans on time.
My biggest accomplishment is providing stability for my family and my biggest goal is to grow my business and increase my wealth.
