Julian Alexis's story

Julian is 21 years old and is passionate about the world of business. When he finished high school, he decided to start his own business with the help of his parents. Today he has a gift store, which he says has been well received in his municipality. For this reason he is requesting a loan to buy more stock for his store, including stuffed animals, stationary sets and chocolates, as well as a computer. His objective is to increase the variety of his inventory and offer his customers a better service.

Julian dreams of entering the university and beginning studies in business administration, but he is aware that for this he must work hard and save the money for his tuition.
