Javier Eduardo's story

Javier is a 22 year old enterprising young man. He began working as an employee in a grocery store. There he obtained experience and knowledge necessary to manage this type of business, and through his own initiative he decided to buy the business from his boss. Little by little he made the payments for the business, and 8 months ago he went from being an employee to being the owner of the business. He sells pastries, cleaning supplies, dairy products, meat, soda pop, and other items. He is open Monday through Sunday. With this work he has been able to improve his income in order to support his household. His drive, energy and positive attitude motivate him to seek a loan with the goal of investing it in buying display cases and new stands to display his products. This will allow him to give a better presentation of his business and be able to attract new customers in order to offer them excellent service and a great variety of products, thus improving his sales and profitability of his business. In this way Javier wishes to continue fighting to achieve his goals, especially expanding his business and converting it into a minimarket, opening the possibility of improving his quality of live and well being of his family.
