Juan Camilo's story

Juan Camilo, at the age of 19 years, already shines as a great businessman, or at least, his ex-boss thinks of him that way. On seeing potential in this young man, he decided to inspire him and loan him the initial capital to start his own business. For nine months, Juan has worked independently from his home, selling beverages and pastries. He says that this has been the best opportunity that life has given him because he has been able to learn about customer service and how to manage finances.

He wants to continue growing on personal and professional levels, so he will start studying marketing to expand his business.

His main challenge is lack of capital, so he finds himself requesting a loan that he will invest in the purchase of stock to meet his customers' needs and improve his revenues.

His family is his greatest treasure, which is why he is prepared to exert himself to give his siblings a good education and his mother a better quality of life.
