Juan Alberto
View original language description ↓
John is a single man who owns a warehouse of construction materials. He sells bricks, cement, lime, wood, among other things. He also manufactures cement floors that are known to have good strength and good quality.

He worked for several years as an assistant in a warehouse where construction materials were sold, then the business owners, seeing his good work and dedicated effort, helped John set up his own warehouse.

Today, his business has progressed well and he already has two trucks loaded with transporting floors and brick. He wants the loan to buy sand and cement in large quantities, because they are the best selling products.
