Alejandro De Jesus's story

Due to the poor quality of life that he had while he worked milking cows or carrying bags in his municipality, Alejandro had the dream of setting up his own business. With that business he would be able to improve his working conditions, and he would get better income for himself.

That was how he established his general store, where he sells all types of basic needs products. Thanks to the store he generates the income he needs to support his household. Alejandro provides his customers with good service. This is the characteristic that has allowed him to gain a large number of customers in his business. He has also been able to have good levels of sales, and thankfully, his business has been growing.

Alejandro seeks a loan to buy basic needs products to stock his business and offer a greater variety of products to his customers. Alejandro hopes that he will be able to stock his business, and that his customers will find it more enticing. This way he will be able to increase the number of customers he has and, therefore, increase his income.

Also, Alejandro hopes that with greater income his family will be able to enjoy a better quality of life and have greater financial opportunities to advance.
