Jhon Jairo's story

Jhon Jairo, 48, has lived his whole life on La Estación lane in the municipality of Angelópolis, Colombia. Due to there being few employment opportunities in his area, this man decided to set up his own business as a means of support for his family, which is made up of his wife and their two minor children.

He has worked independently for seven years, which has great advantages. The first is that he can dedicate more time to his family and the second is that with his own business, he sees it as easier to save and buy his own home.

He currently has a a billiards room, in which he sells drinks and snacks. His business is very well known on the lane, aside from which it is the only business of this type.

His greatest dream is to be able to acquire a motorcycle to transport his children to school, since the school and his workplace are very far from his home. This would allow him to save time and money. For this reason he finds himself requesting a loan since he does not have the money to make this investment.
