Jorge Washington
Jorge is a supplier of small domestic gas tanks in Libertad. He began this business when he retired from the Navy where he rendered his services. It’s a job that always has customers and so he works every day from 8:30 in the morning until 6:00pm. He buys his orders from the large distributors and later sells them by unit, as the authorities suggest, buying the cylinders at $2.00 and selling at $2.50. He is requesting a loan in order to buy more cylinders to have on hand as there are some months that the products are scarce. In the future he hopes to be able to expand his house and make his stockroom larger.

Jorge tiene en Libertad una pequeña distribuidora de tanques de gas domésticos. Empezó el negocio cuando se jubilo de la marina donde prestaba sus servicios. Es un trabajo en el que siempre tiene clientes por lo que labora todos los días desde las 8:30 de la mañana hasta las 18:00 pm. La compra la solicita a las grandes distribuidoras para luego vender por unidad ya que así lo indican las autoridades, compra el cilindro a $ 2.00 y la vende a $ 2.50. El préstamo que está solicitando es para comprar más cilindros y tener en stop ya que hay meses que escasea el producto. A futuro espera poder ampliar su casa y hacer más grande su depósito.
