Jhon Geimar's story

Jhon is a very hardworking person who is always looking to provide a better life for his family. He is a single father with a 9-year old son; the mother left them a while ago. Formerly Jhon worked for a company, where, according to Jhon, he was really badly paid. He didn’t even earn enough to cover household expenses.

To earn more money, he has started to work independently selling vegetables and fruit. He hopes in this way to support his family and provide his son with a better standard of living. Eager to get his business going, Jhon is hoping for a loan to buy staples and a supply of fruit and vegetables. As well he wants to renovate the premises where he sells the produce.

Jhon hopes that his business will carry on doing well and he can offer very good products to his customers. As well, he hopes that with his earnings he can provide his son with a better quality of life and a good education.
