Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is a 29-year old married man. He currently has 2 sons who live in Sololá. He has made his living buying and selling cell phones and repairing them for 8 years. He currently has a store where he lives.

He chose this activity because it generates sufficient income to cover his family's expenses. He is applying for a loan of Q 7,000.00 for working capital for the purchase and sale of cell phones and replacement parts.

He dreams about improving his store and increasing his merchandise to be at the vanguard of technology and thus offer his customers better service.
