Jairo's story

Jairo is a 61-year-old man. He is an honorable, hardworking man who works tirelessly to put food on the table in his home. His business was started in 2018 because he dreamed of improving the conditions of his home. To do this, he must work hard with much dedication, effort, committment, and enthusiasm. That is why he is asking for a loan to pay for drainage for a packing machine and cooler for his store. He hopes that this investment will give him the possibility of being competitive in the market, increase sales and satisfy his customers.

Jairo is a family man. His 2 children represent everything to him. He hopes that with his work, he can provide a decent quality of life for his family and children.
