Juan Manuel's story

Juan Manuel is 46 years old. He worked for many years for a business in the commercial sector, but due to downsizing, he became unemployed. This motivated him to start his own business and become an entrepreneur.

He opened a general store to the public three months ago. The business has been well received by the people in his neighborhood, which caused him to request a loan so that he can purchase stock and shelves so that he can better present his products. He hopes that he can meet the needs of his household and educate his 16 year old son.
