Yeison Arley's story

Today Yeison lives with his mother and a nephew who was abandoned by his mother. It is for them that he needs to generate income to support them daily, as the household depends on him for economic support. Therefore, for 4 years he has had his own business, a grocery store that he opened, even though he didn't have any experience running a store. Nonetheless with trial and error he has learned and now he is well-known in the area. He is conscientious that he works in a competitive area and he knows that the value he can offer his customers is to have a well-stocked store in order to meet their needs and requirements. Therefore he seeks a loan to buy stock at wholesale (pastries, soda pop, grains, cookies, pasta, and other items), and in this way he will be well-stocked to meet the demand that typically increases with the end of the year season. This will be very useful and help him with his business, which is very profitable. Yeison wishes to be successful, strengthening his business and making it grow, in order to have greater income which will give him economic stability in order to help his family get ahead, especially his nephew, who motivates him to continue fighting in order to be able to enjoy well being and a quality of life with people that love him.
