Arnovis Arney's story

Arnovis is 25 years old and the father of a five-year-old son. Due to the lack of employment opportunities and difficulties in securing a job, he decided to look for ways to generate his own income. For this reason, he opened an Internet café where he works every day from 6:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. so that he can get ahead. This allows him to earn the money he needs to support his young son.

Arnovis has had to overcome a variety of obstacles, especially with the people that he hired to help him with the business. They were dishonest and engaged in fraudulent accounting, which resulted in losses. Within the past four months, he has had to replace his employees twice. Nonetheless, he has coped with the situation and moved forward.

Arnovis is currently requesting a loan so that he can invest in fixed assets (computers) in order to increase his capacity and meet the existing demand. This will be reflected in an increased profit margin from the service that he provides. As a result, he will be able to improve his family’s living conditions and continue strengthening his business. Arnovis will also be able to create job opportunities and provide his son with a better well-being and education so that he can grow up with a solid foundation and become a good man.
