Álvaro Enrique's story

Álvaro, who is 48 years old, is married and the father of two children, ages 12 and 17. He comes from a very humble family that lived in a constant economic crisis. Because of this, he had to work beginning when he was 12 years old. He began to work in the construction field and, over time, he grew and acquired a lot of experience and knowledge, so he became a construction teacher and he is now in charge of many people.

He still carries out this work and has been able to bring his family forward and educate his children, who have become the driving force in his life. Álvaro describes himself as an active, persistent, and determined. Despite all the difficulties he has faced, he always overcomes them and continues to advance.

This has motivated him to request the assistance of a loan, with which he will purchase a motorcycle to facilitate his transportation to different areas where he has contracts. This way, he will be able to meet his deadlines and reduce his costs, which will improve the profitability of his business. This will allow him to increase his economic resources, with which he will be able to resolve his household's needs.

Álvaro hopes to continue fighting each day and provide his children with a better quality of life and an excellent education, since his dream is to see them progress and become professionals so that they can forge their own path of success and have a better quality of life.
