Albeiro Arleyson's story

Albeiro is a small businessman who, from a very young age, has sold fruits and vegetables in different businesses located in the town of Yarumal, in Antioquia Department. Because of the difficult economic situation his family went through, from childhood he had to learn the law of hard work, which has strengthened him and has allowed him to become an enterprising man who, despite difficulties, has wanted to excel and get ahead in life. Today, at 25 years old, he is setting out to run his own business, a fruit and vegetable store which has given him the opportunity to be independent and generate income for his family. Albeiro works everyday from 5:30 am until 8:00 pm, and although his workday is long, Albeiro believes that only with responsibility, an enterprising spirit and dedication can he make his dream come true, the dream of turning his fruit and vegetable store into a supermarket that offers his customers a large variety of products so he will be able to build his own house. Right now Albeiro wants his fruit and vegetable store to have more and more customers, and as a strategy he intends to stock a large variety of products and make some changes to the premises. To do this, he needs a loan because his income is not high enough to cover such an investment.
