A loan helped to purchase washing machines with which he expects to expand his service coverage.


Jose Guillermo's story

During his productive life, Guillermo has worked independently at a variety of businesses, but he feels particular motivation for his undertaking renting washing machines since it has been a business which generates additional income for him.

Currently, and with the intention of stabilizing his finances, he wants to boost his business and make it the best in the whole municipality. For this, he is asking for loan support which he will use to purchase washing machines with which he expects to expand his service coverage.

Guillermo dreams of strengthening his business, formalizing it, so that it allows him to increase his sales. In addition, he wants to generate direct jobs. This will give him the capacity to enjoy favorable financial stability and to be able to improve his living conditions.
