Darío Alberto's story

Darío, at the age of 57, is the father of an 11-year-old son, and he lives in free union with his partner. From a very early age, he was acquainted with producing and selling food, because he helped his parents and sisters do this work. Twelve years ago he set up his own business, following the family tradition of producing and selling food, and for that he receives the support of his wife. With this business, he has generated sufficient income to support his family. Darío is an entrepreneurial man, active and striving, and he works with great care for arduous workdays from Monday to Sunday from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm, with the goal of using his time to the maximum to sell his products. This borrower always goes in search of options that allow him to advance, and he sees in the loan a means of support to continue advancing and reach his goals. The loan will be invested in the purchase of cooking utensils (big pots) and supplies (vegetables, meats, flour, oil); with this he will be able to give continuity to his business, increasing his production to satisfy all the demand that he has, since his products are recognized in his district. Darío dreams of strengthening his business so that it allows him to generate more income and in this way offer a better education to his son, so that he can have a prosperous future.
