Edinson Antonio's story

Edinson has one child. He is in a common-law marriage and lives with his life partner. Due to the lack of employment opportunities and the difficult financial situation his family is going through, he decided to look for options to generate income on his own. Therefore, he wishes to start his own business, a stationery store where he will offer photocopying services and sell different items like pens, notebooks, erasers, and cardboard, among others.

With this business activity he will be able to take advantage of the advantage that he has. In the area where his business will be located there are no other businesses offering these services. In this way he wishes to start again to generate income to pay for his family’s basic necessities.

Edinson has an entrepreneurial and creative spirit that helps him to find new opportunities to make progress. He is aware that he needs to work with great care and dedication in order to do so.

This motivates him to request the loan with which he will buy a photocopy machine and stock (pens, notebooks, cardboard, and markers, among others). With this he will be able to start with his business idea. Edinson dreams of setting up a store that will be profitable and well-known in the area. He dreams of it generating better income in order to be able to improve his family’s living conditions, to provide them with stable and favorable finances, and to be able to enjoy a better quality of life.
