Alejandro Antonio's story

"Entrepreneur" is the best word to describe Alejandro, a young man of 21 who is studying and working to generate his own income and contribute to his parents' household income. Alejandro has worked for about three years selling wines and wine-based aperitifs. He began his business through a friend who is the owner of a liquor business in the city. She sells him the wines and Alejandro is in charge of marketing them. Alejandro is known for being a very friendly person who offers very good service, in addition to which he is known for his great charisma, and he always wants to offer a sense of well-being to the all the people who surround him. Thanks to having many good customers, he has a large order from one of them, and he doesn't have enough in his present inventory to satisfy it. This is why, with the aim of responding to the customer with the order, Alejandro is looking for a loan that will offer him the possibility of buying the wines and wine-based aperitifs to fill the large order that his customer has placed.

Alejandro hopes to be able to continue increasing his sales and further expanding the capacity of his business. In addition, he wants to begin selling wine in other towns so that he can generate work for vulnerable people who need income and have not found work opportunities. Alejandro dreams of having a very good quality of life with his family, where he can offer his parents good economic stability. Furthermore, he wants to finish his studies and be able to continue with his business until he converts it into a big commercial enterprise.
