A loan of $650 helped to purchase supplies to make mats.


Jorge Juan's story

Jorge is a 33 year old entrepreneur. He worked for more than eight years in a mat factory where he learned and aquired experience. About a year ago, he decided to leave and start his own business, taking advantage of the knowledge he obtained. He works from his home and does marketing by telephone and on social networks to save costs. He works every day from 7:00am until 6:00pm.

Since his business is in the starting phase, Jorge is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of materials to make a larger number of mats that his customers have ordered. His biggest hope is to grow in this market and reach a point of maturity that will allow him to give his family better living conditions.
