John Enrique's story

John Enrique is 47 years old and has made a living as a goldsmith for more than 30 years. This business has allowed him to sustain his home and provide his children with housing and an education.

His greatest goal has been to get his family ahead, as he has had to face quite difficult financial situations. Sometimes his work hasn’t had the demand expected, and other times he hasn’t had enough capital to satisfy the level of requests, as is currently the case. For this reason he is seeking a loan to buy raw materials to be able to increase his productivity, which will improve his income and quality of life.
