Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is 23 years old and is a young man who is very enthusiastic and likes to ride bike. He lives with his uncle and his brother.

Juan Carlos has worked for 6 years making tents for events and vehicles. The experience he acquired gave him an opportunity to start his own business making tents. The quality in the construction of the tents and the materials that he uses to make his tents produces an excellent product that has made him gain popularity among his customers.

Juan Carlos is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of a sewing machine, canvas and thread so that he will be able to continue producing tents of a good quality.

In the future he hopes to be able to have a bigger business that will allow him to grow and study to be someone in life.
