Juan Carlos's story

Juan is 33 and lives with his wife and 4 children in Otavalo. He is described as a happy, dynamic and sociable person.

Juan has worked with an assistant for 6 years in his locksmith’s shop. He has worked with Fodemi since 2010 and the loan he is requesting currently is to buy materials to supply his business, which will help him to increase his sales and his income. This will enable him to provide an education for his children.

His dream is that his business will grow considerably, so that he will have more work and will be able to employ more people.
