Cristian David's story

Thanks to everything his father taught him about repairs, Cristian decided to start his own business fixing all kinds of appliances; the income from the business covers all his expenses and contributes economically to his household. Cristian is a young man who has always been very enterprising, and he puts a lot of care into his work, which has allowed him to attract a large clientele, who seek out his work. Cristian offers a service that is not very readily found in his town; there are few similar businesses, which means he gets a good part of the work in his town and that he makes very good sales. Cristian's work is known for its high quality, and he has a very good reputation with his clients, so his business has been growing little by little. With the aim of offering his clients good quality work, Cristian is seeking a loan so he can buy more spare parts for his business and do some remodelling of his business premises.

Cristian hopes his business will keep growing and that it will continue to bring in the income necessary to sustain him and bring home money to his family. Moreover, Cristian is looking for a bigger premises where he can make his business more attractive to his clients and thereby keep growing to the point where he can generate employment and contribute to improving other people's quality of life.
