Jorge Eliecer's story

Jorge is 48 years old and an enterprising man who some 11 years ago initiated his own business selling products by catalog, including perfumes, lotions, and fragrances. His clients reside in the municipality of La Ceja, located in the east of Antioquia, and its villages. Jorge learned this activity from watching his friends. He alternates between this and his work as a guard.

Jorge currently lacks capital to invest because many of his customers are not paying their debts. For this reason, he wants to buy new merchandise to offer to new customers and, thus, be able to recuperate and improve his quality of life, as well as that of his wife and son.
