Jamer Yovany's story

Jamer is 24 years of age, and is an enterprising young man with a strong desire to get ahead in life. He completed his secondary school education at the age of 17. Due to his family’s difficult financial situation, he couldn’t go to university, so he started a free technical course to train as an electrician. Thanks to this opportunity, this young man now works as an electrician, a business which has allowed him to improve his quality of life and that of his parents. He works every day in the town of Rionegro, starting at 7 am and finishing at 6 pm.

Jamer’s biggest dream is to be able to open his own workshop, so that he can generate more income and have the time he needs to continue with the professional studies involved in his profession. He has therefore requested a loan to invest in the purchase of tools (electric welder, pliers, voltage tester), which will allow him to improve the quality of the service he offers, as well as to increase the number of customers he has.
