Jhon Jairo's story

Throughout his life Jhon Jairo has been a salesman. His entire family has been in business and it was his parents who taught him as a child how to work. In the past 11 years he has worked in his own store, selling items such as snacks, soft drinks, cookies, personal use products, gum, and milk products, among other things that meet his customers’ needs. They all know and appreciate him in his sector. At age 54, this single gentleman works for the well-being of his community, working honestly and being friendly to his customers. Jhon Jairo would like to buy more items for his store so that he can increase his earnings and be able to achieve his grandest dream of having his own farm as a business, close to the main road in town.
