Jaime Enrique's story

Jaime is a 42-year-old man who has been making his living working in the art of carpentry for the last 10 years. He set up his own business thanks to one of his friends who showed him the tricks of the trade at a time in which his family was going through a hard time financially speaking. He works from Monday to Saturday and has the help of a direct employee.

His enthusiasm, enterprising spirit and his dedication to work make Jaime a true example to follow for his two children for whom he fights on a constant basis to get them ahead in life. This encouraged him to seek this loan which he wants to invest in the purchase of raw materials in bulk (wood and paint) with which he will be able to enough material on hand to satisfy the needs and various taste of his customers and therein offer them a more flexible and reliable service at the moment of delivering the orders. This will be reflected in the increase in sales and profits that he will make. Jaime fervently wants to continue working so that in the near future doors will open and he will be able to set up a furniture store where he will be able to sell all the products he makes and this will enable him to generate a greater amount of income to give his family better living conditions.
