Jairo Antonio's story

Jairo is a kind and hardworking 53-year-old man. He lives in the town of Ovejas with his family of two children, 6 and 5, and his spouse. The business they have is a small-scale grocery store, where they try to have as many food and cleaning products available as possible.

Jairo’s dream is to pay for his children’s education. He wants them to be the first generation in his family to attend university.

Jairo wants to request a loan so he can stock up on grains and groceries, the highest rotation products in his store.
