A loan of $5,500 helped buy the computer components necessary to create an internet cafe.


Ferney Andrés's story

The necessity of maintaining a household has become the major priority for Andres, a young man of 23. Assuring the wellbeing of his family is his major preoccupation and responsibility, since he is the senior man of the house. After finishing his upper secondary education, he entered the working world and thanks to the development of his activities, he has generated the necessary support for his family. Today, he is soliciting a loan to invest in the acquisition of his own business, an internet cafe where he will offer added services such as computer equipment maintenance and cell phone repair. Andres is confident that with the purchase of this business, the economic conditions of his family will improve considerably and he will have the opportunity to enroll in the university to become a systems engineer.
