Javier De Jesus's story

Javier is a very hard-working and tenacious person who strives to make progress in life. As a result, he has been able to overcome the difficulties he has faced. Javier has been upholstering vehicles and furniture for approximately 30 years and this business makes him the income he needs to support his household. Javier lives with his wife and two children. Thanks to the good quality of his work, Javier is very well known among the people who live in his town. This means that he experiences very good sales. Owing to the fact that he has been using his equipment for a long time, he would like to replace it so that he can provide better-quality work. As he does not have enough capital to buy this equipment, Javier is looking to take out a loan which will allow him to buy it. This will enable him to produce better-quality work.

Javier hopes, in this way, to renew his equipment without affecting his monthly income so that he can continue providing for his for his family. Javier dreams of being able to offer his wife and children a better quality of life and hopes to enjoy better opportunities for making progress.
