Giovanni Alexander
Giovanni is 19 years old and lives with his mother, who works as a beautician, and his younger sister, who is in school.

Giovanni is hard-working and responsible and wants to help his mother out with the household expenses. This is why he worked hard to start his own metal shop two years ago. Due to not having enough money to invest in iron, he has not been able to accept all of the jobs that have been offered to him. He does not want this situation to continue, and that is why he is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL which he will invest in the purchase of iron in bulk, tools, and other items necessary for him to improve the way in which he works.

Giovanni has many dreams which he will be able to realize, little by little, as long as his business keeps growing.
