John Fredy's story

Señor John Fredy is 25 years old. For the past four years, he has owned a business, which makes and sells arepas [flat, round, unleavened patties made of cornmeal or flour which can be grilled, baked, boiled, or fried]. He has been able to do so thanks to his mother who has always supported him.

In his arepa factory, John Fredy produces 1,200 arepas daily. At present, he needs to purchase a vehicle in which to transport the finished product so that he can fulfill all of his orders on time and offer better service. Having a vehicle, John Fredy will be able to improve both his income and the quality of life for his mother and himself. In the future, John Fredy dreams that his arepa factory will be well positioned in the market.
