Juan Alejandro Lazaro's story

Juan is no longer young at 66 years old. However he is also very hard-working, responsible and moreover a great entrepreneur. He has been married to Bertha for 48 years and together they form a large family with 12 children. Five of them are female, seven male. They are all independent now.

Juan sells paint and industrial waste materials like plastic, metal and cardboard barrels. Formally he has been in this business for 3 years, but he has been selling all kinds of materials his whole life. He started to sell waste materials when he signed a contract with a factory to buy cans of paint. Juan sells them to various hardware stores around his municipality.

Juan is requesting this loan to be able to pay for his order of cans of paint. He has to pay the factory before he can take his merchandise. He needs to get it to his clients as soon as possible as he has lots of orders and loyal customers.

" My only difficulty is not having enough money to invest in my business". Despite this challenge Juan wants to continue on with his business. His goal is to stock all the colors. "I don't like it when clients go away without what they want". Juan is very happy and grateful for the opportunity to get a loan from VisionFund.
