Jorge Eliecer's story

Jorge has been working for several years manufacturing his own line of cleaning tools like brooms, mops and brushes, among others. He’s supported his family by means of this business providing good quality of life for his home.

Some time ago Jorge was employed but when he was let go from his job he faced great economic difficulties and his wife and children had to go through them too. However, with much struggle and constant effort he was able to move his own business forward and in now able to generate income that allows his children to have a good quality education and there is better economic stability at home.

However, because he’s an only child, he must contribute economically to his mother so that she can also have a good quality of life and because she is no longer of working age Jorge must support her. Because his mother is currently unwell, Jorge is looking for a way to increase his income considerably to cover her medical expenses and this is why he’s looking for a loan to buy raw materials to manufacture his cleaning tools and be able to respond to large pending orders he has and generate the income needed for his mother.

In this way he will be able to provide what’s necessary for his mother and also continue generating income needed at home. His greatest dream is to move his business forward and to be able to generate employment to improve the quality of life of other people by means of his business.
