Jorge's story

Jorge, 36, is married to Victoria, with whom he has three children. Together with his family, he lives in a house built out of solid materials. Jorge works selling edible goods, which is the main means of supporting his family. He has had this business for more than seven years, during which he has gained experience in the field, making his business a good way to be next to his children and his wife. He is currently planning to buy basic goods wholesale, with the hope of having reserves in the future. He also wants to build an additional shelf to display his goods. He will also paint his store to make it more attractive. With the amount he has applied for, 3,500 nuevos soles, he will buy wholesale foodstuffs like rice, sugar, and milk, among other things. He will also hire someone to build the shelf and paint his store. This is why he is so glad for the financial support that he is receiving, because it will help him to continue expanding his business.
