Esteban Alejandro's story

Esteban is a very dedicated and entrepreneurial person, who despite his young age has suffered many adversities in his life, which thanks to his drive and desire to get ahead he has been able to overcome. Esteban is 20 years old, is the son of separated parents, he lives with his mother, and as the eldest of his siblings is the one who must ensure income for the home. Esteban's father taught him to make bands for pool tables, and thanks to this Esteban started his own business when he had to look for income for his home.

Currently, Esteban has a shop that despite not being luxurious and not having high tech machines, permits him to generate sufficient income to maintain a dignified quality of life for his family. Esteban has many good clients, and one of these has made a large order for which he needs to buy the raw materials to produce it. Nevertheless, Esteban does not have sufficient capital to make these purchases, which is why he hopes that this loan will offer him the possibility to buy the raw materials he needs to produce the pool bands and complete the order that his client has made.

Esteban dreams that his business grows and he can modernize his machines, in addition to generating employment and providing his siblings and mother with a good quality of life and economic prosperity.
