Nicolás Alirio's story

Nicolás is 48 years old. He is married and has 2 children. He makes frames, an activity that he learned when he was young and worked in a shop that provided this service. He also knows about photography and does oil painting, which has enabled him to earn money to support his family. He sublets the space where he has his business, which reduces the earnings he makes on each sale and complicates his family's financial stability. He is an entrepreneurial man, wise and dedicated to his family and his work. For this reason he is requesting a loan which he will invest in a sander, a compressor, molding, and paintings, in order to continue with his business and offer a well-made and sanded product that meets the needs of each of his clients, so he can increase his sales and earnings. Nicolás dreams of having his own space for his business and of having many more customers who recognize him for his work and recommend him to others. He will save money by not having to pay rent, and he will invest his money in the business and improve his family's quality of life.
