Jorge Humberto's story

37-year-old Jorge is married and has three children. He has worked for fifteen years as a foreman in different construction sites around the region of Antioquia. He learned this activity from his family and it has been his main source of income, helping him to support his children and wife.

Jorge is known to be a hardworking, persistent and energetic man. His will to get ahead makes him look for more opportunities to progress and this is why he is requesting a loan. He will buy tools (a cutting machine, a sanding machine, a chain saw and manual tools) that will help him to improve the quality of his works and attract new clients. He will also reduce his costs, since he will have the machines he requires without needing to rent them from someone else. All this will result in an increase in his income, well-being for his family and the possibility to enjoy better living conditions together with his wife and children.
