Eddy Andres's story

Eddy, 58, is originally from León. He is in a relationship and has three children aged 6, 13 and 16. He studied up to the sixth grade of primary education. Eddy works as a salesman; he sells and stores seafood, a business he started more than five years ago with the help of a friend. With time, his friend decided to leave the business to Eddy, and he has managed to keep it running with effort and hard work. He feels satisfied because he has a daily income and loyal customers. This is Eddy’s first business and his partner and children support him. He hopes to increase his sales and profits. Eddy is requesting a loan to buy fish, crabs, shrimps, lobsters, etc. He believes this loan will help him to buy more seafood with the aim to expand his business, step by step. His plans for the future are to continue investing in buying seafood. One of his short-term goals is to be able to pay the loan so that he can request another one. He dreams of the day when his children receive a university degree.
