A loan of $1,300 helped to make modifications to his kitchen.

Mauricio Andrés's story

Mauricio, 21, is an enterprising young man. After finishing his secondary studies he looked for work to earn an income. He began working in a business selling cheese bread, where he worked for six months and learned the recipe and the management of this type of business.

He wanted to work on his own and generate his own income so he decided to set up his own business making cheese bread. It's located on a very busy street in the downtown of the city where he lives. He has the help of one employee and he works every day from 7 a.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Currently Mauricio's requesting the support of a loan to make modifications to his place (to fix the kitchen) to optimize the space and be able to comply with all the health rules the law obliges. This will generate more trust in the customers about the product they're consuming, consequently allowing him to increase his sales.

His main wish is to be able to make his business grow and, in the future, start a company to produce this food to distribute in other cities. This would guarantee him a profitability that would allow him to have a better lifestyle.
