John Mario's story

John is 35 years old and lives with his wife and two-year-old son. He has been working the past seven years in his business, a variety store where he sells clothing, personal grooming products, baby items, and other merchandise. John initially set up his business in a rented location, but later on he was able to rent a much larger building where his store is currently located. He and his wife work every day of the week.

John is a determined, hardworking, and active man who is dedicated to his family and his job. He is always looking for ways to get ahead. For this reason, he is requesting a loan so that he can invest in merchandise in bulk (clothing, shoes, grooming products, umbrellas, school supplies, and other items) in order to increase his sales. By having a wider variety of merchandise, John will be able to satisfy the tastes and needs of his customers. This will result in an increase in his profit margin.

John dreams of strengthening his business, building it up to make it profitable, and sustaining it over time. This will guarantee his financial stability so that he can provide his family better well-being and an improved quality of life.
