Juan Diego's story

Juan Diego is a young man of 22 years of age, who has won the admiration and respect of his family. His drive and desire to get ahead have enabled him to achieve great dreams in life. At his young age, he has succeeded in setting up his own fast-food business, where he works at the weekends. During the week he bakes doughnuts, cheese breads and cheesy maize breads which he distributes to the cafés in the municipality of Marinilla, Colombia. His dearest wish is to be able to start up a bakery where he can create jobs. Juan Diego’s biggest motivation is his one year old son. He dreams of being able to give him a good education and an excellent quality of life. At the moment, Juan Diego is looking for a loan to buy a digital oven, with which he hopes to increase and improve his daily production.
