Alexis's story

Alexis is 23 years old and is a young entrepreneur. He has made a living by printing t-shirts and, with the money that he earned, continued to save so that he could become independent. Some time ago, he achieved his goal and purchased some sewing machines with his savings. He started a workshop where he offers his sewing services as a third party. He has many employees who normally sew the garments while he transports the unfinished or complete batches but, when production increases, he also sews. His drive, enthusiasm, and impact have allowed him to achieve goals that many people his age can't even imagine. He requests the loan so that he can invest it in the purchase of necessary supplies in bulk (fabric, thread, buttons, elastic). This way, he will have enough working capital to be able to complete his productions on time, increase his contracts, and earn more money. Alexis wants to continue working with determination and dedication to make his small business successful, profitable, and long-lasting. In the future, he would like to acquire more machines and offer more jobs, improving his the quality of life of his family and of the other people who inspire him in this difficult work.
