Mauricio's story

Mauricio is a person who has suffered various adversities in his life but thanks to his being a very hardworking and enterprising person he’s been able to overcome them. Some time ago he left the city of his birth and moved in order to seek out employment opportunities. However, not finding any employment opportunities he decided to open his own business hoping to generate income for his home. Mauricio, 51, is married and the father of a son for whom he wants to provide everything he needs. Mauricio has been working in his business ever since and has managed to make it grow and position it in its sector. Thanks to this he has a good clientele and sales have increased considerably. Now, Mauricio has had to take on various expenses because his son is starting school around now and he has also had some inconveniences that have cause him to spend much money. Hoping to take advantage of the start of the new school term, Mauricio is hoping for a loan that will allow him to purchase stationery supplies like notebooks, pencils, erasers and construction paper, among others to offer a good variety of merchandise to his customers. Mauricio hopes to take advantage of this season and manage to increase income considerably as well as to be able to offer his wife and son a better quality of life. Mauricio’s dream is to be able to buy a house of his own and to have his own locale in which to install his business.
