Héctor Emilio's story

Héctor, 60 years old, lives in the city of Medellín, where he works daily from 10 am - 12 am in a delicatessen, which he set up with a lot of effort and dedication. Thanks to this work he has managed to get his family ahead, made up of his wife and two children.

His biggest dream is to guarantee his family decent living conditions and ensure the growth and durability of his business in the market, as he is convinced that this will be the legacy he will leave to his children and them to his grandchildren. With the aim of improving the hygienic and healthy conditions of his business, Héctor is asking for a loan which he will invest in making alterations to his premises in order to offer a better service and to buy a range of products so he has an inventory of stock.
