Juan Sebastián's story

Juan Sebastián, who is 18 years old, is living proof that all that is needed in life is motivation and opportunity. Thanks to some small capital that his father gave him, this young man did not hesitate to initiate his business project: he opened an internet café after studying the area where he lives and realizing the potential demand for this service.

His dreams are now becoming true and since he has the potential to become a good manager in his own business, he decided to study repair and maintenance of computers in order to decrease operational costs and offer this additional service. His biggest dream is to be able to improve his service and provide his parents with a better quality of life.

Juan Sebastián is now thinking of expanding his portfolio and requests a loan to invest in video games and school supplies.
