Gerardo Egidio's story

Gerardo, age 35, has had a store for three years. He tends to his business from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. throughout the week, and he watches out for it so that it goes well.

He learned this trade from his family, who has always supported him. It is for them that he works arduously day to day with the intention of getting enough income to support them.

His business now needs some products, and he needs to buy stock. In order to do so, he is requesting a loan because he does not have his own resources for said investment. He dreams of expanding his business and improving his family’s quality of life.
