Saul Alejandro's story

Small businessman: Saúl Alejandro D. O.

Ever since he was seven years old Saúl Alejandro D. O. has known what is is to earn a living by working. He was raised by his grandmother because his parents abandoned him when he was very little. This situation kept him from getting an education. Work was his priority so that the family was able to have their daily bread.

Saúl has been working twelve years selling juice in the Medellín Plaza Minorista sector. He mainly sells to the drivers in the sector who recognize the quality of his product. He is requesting a loan to be able to diversify his products so that he will be able to increase the sales in his business.

Saúl needs the loan to support the improvement to his business, which will positively influence his quality of life.

Saúl’s dream is to have his own house. He is convinced that through the loan, which will increase his business, he will soon be able to make his dream come true.
