José Nelson's story

José is a 19-year-old man who lives in a common law marriage with his romantic partner. Because he has little work experience, it has been difficult for him to find employment opportunities, so he wants to start his own business and generate resources on his own. He wants to make a living by selling perfumes and steel jewelry accessories, taking advantage of the fact that he has a lot of friends and family members who could turn into potential customers. With this business he hopes to earn the income that he needs to cover his basic household needs.

José is aware that to get the results that he wants, he must work with persistence, discipline and lot of dedication, as this is the key to his business project being profitable. He wants to invest the loans he is asking for in the purchase of an assortment of items wholesale (lotions and steel accessories) to be able to launch his business idea.

José dreams of making his business generate good results and to be able to launch a distributor in the future, which would allow him to have ample financial stability to give his family a better quality of life and well being.
