Jhon Jairo's story

Jhon is 35 years old. He ensures his family has a strong foundation, for which he fights daily so that they have a decent life and don't go without. For the past ten years, he has worked independently in the store he built through hard work and the dedication of the whole family. His wife, after completing the housework, heads over to the store to help with the orders and assist customers. His desire to start a store came from experiences in his childhood, as his parents sent him to spend holidays with his cousins family and they had a grocery store. Jhon fell in love with the idea and his desire to have his own business became a reality. Today he wants to improve the presentation of his store in order to make it more palatable to the public and increase demand for his products. The reason he is requesting the loan is to improve the store's image. His greatest dream is to be able to give his family their own home to improve their living conditions.
