Edwin Alexander's story

Edwin, 26 years old, is single and doesn't have children. Due to a lack of work opportunities, he decided to start his own business and find resources on his own. He put together the pizzeria two years ago, taking advantage of the opportunity of not having nearby competition, achieving excellent results that are now reflected in the opening of two other pizzerias, which are located in other municipalities of Antioquia. Edwin is an organized, enterprising, sensible, and active man. He is always looking for opportunities to move toward completing his goals.

For this reason, he is requesting a loan, which he wants to invest in improving his locations (change the cement floor to ceramic) and buy fixed assets (refrigerator) for one of his locations. This will give his business a better image and improve his customers' perceptions. This will allow him to attract new guests and increase sales and income. Edwin dreams growing his business into a pizzeria chain, which would be profitable and long-lasting. With this, he hopes to have economic stability to guarantee a better future for his family.
