Richard Anderson's story

Richard is a happy young man of 18 years of age. He lives with his mother in a room that they rent. In order to pay for their necessities, his mother sells clothing door to door. To help her, Richard accompanied her in selling when he got out of school. Thus he was learning, bit by bit, how to negotiate and how to attract the attention of customers with his products, among other things.

Then, with some savings, Richard set up his business of selling telephone accessories. The desire to further stock his business is why he is applying for his first loan, which he will invest in USB cables, flash drives, chargers, cases, screens, and headphones, among other accessories.

With this, he hopes to improve his profitability.
