Colombia
Copacabana, Colombia / Restaurant

Cristian Javier's story

Cristian, 22, is married and the father of one 20-month-old son. With the purpose of acquiring an income on his own, he wishes to open up his own business, in partnership with his best friend (see photo), and take advantage of their knowledge of administration and gastronomy.

He will put together a gourmet express type of restaurant, an idea that sprung from the need to satisfy the tastes and needs of the people who travel through the area where he lives. In order to achieve this, he has already obtained the store property and requires the support of a loan to invest in the purchase of fixed assets (fridge, oven, roaster, and for kitchen setup: pots, cutlery, tableware, and other kitchen utensils), to make adjustments to the premises, and to buy wholesale products (vegetables, meat, pasta, sodas).

This way, he will be able to begin his business project, with the idea of obtaining clients that help make his business site recognized as much for the quality of its food as for the service it offers. Cristian knows that to succeed with this project, he must work with dedication, discipline and care. Only then will he make his idea a profitable business that generates a good income for him and guarantees him economic stability to offer his family a better quality of life and well-being.
