Jaime Alberto's story

Jaime is 32 years old, married, and has three children who are 11, 9, and 7 years old. He got the idea to start his own business when he was not able to find work opportunities and his family was in a difficult financial situation. He started a restaurant where he works from Monday to Sunday together with his wife. This allows them to earn the necessary resources to meet their family's needs and basic expenses. Jaime is a man with a vision for the future to achieve his goals. He is always thinking of the well-being of his children and his wife, who motivate him to move forward every day.

He is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of ingredients at wholesale (grains, vegetables, sodas, oil, meat, and other items) and fixed assets (canopies to adapt his business). This will allow him to improve the image of his business and offer his customers a large variety of fresh products of good quality. This will help him expand his customer base and therefore improve his family's financial situation. This gives him the opportunity to advance towards the fulfillment of his greatest dream, which is to strengthen his business and open more locations so that he can provide employment opportunities to other people, and improve not only his family's quality of life but also that of the employees that work for him.
