Gino's story

He also rents out sound equipment and other implements for parties and social events in town. Part of his work consists of making commercials, doing photo sessions, narrating some documentaries, etc. He does this work out of his mother’s home, where he set a space up as an office.

He’s been doing this for three years and he feels that things are going well for him since his customer base has increased. What he enjoys about his work is that it generates a good income for him and he always has fun doing it because it’s something that has fascinated since he was a child. He has learned many things by doing this, and he continues training in new sound and design techniques. He’s gained many customers and he hopes to continue his growth phase.

His goal is to set up a completely equipped studio and he has already purchased some equipment that he needs for his work. He is asking for a loan of S/ 800 and he is happy and grateful to know that he has financial support so he can continue his business. He will use the money to buy some cables that he needs to replace. He will also buy some colored lights that he needs to he can rent them out.
