Gilberto's story

Gilberto is 58 years old. He has made progress with effort and dedication. Before he set up his business, he worked in a restaurant where he learned management and customer service. This is the reason why he decided to become independent and invest his savings in the creation of his own business. Today his restaurant-cafeteria is seven years old and he feel satisfied with his achieved goals. The business allows him to offer his wife and six children a better quality of life and a good education. His biggest wish is to be able to expand his business and to generate sources of employment in order to help other families. In pursuit of his goal, Gilberto is requesting a loan in order to purchase a variety of pastries, soft drinks and supplies for making food.
