Averson Juneral's story

Averson is 44 years old. He is a single father of a 4 year old whom he has gotten ahead with a lot of effort. During his work life, he has worked at different activities. However, in order to improve his income, he decided to start his own business selling fast food and fried products. He learned this activity from his mother. He works with the help of an employee from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. This is how he has been able to pay for his and his son's basic needs.

The loan he has asked for is to invest in buying a heated display case, kitchen utensils and ingredients wholesale (deli meats, sauces, sodas, empanadas, and more). This allows him to have better display of his products and he will be able to offer more food variety for the diverse tastes of his diners. This will lead to an increase in sales and income from his work.

Averson says that his aim in the medium term is to expand his locale and have more space for his customers to be more comfortable. He also dreams of being able to acquire the locale to continue in his business but in a more profitable way. This way, he will be able to give his son a quality education and improve his family's well being.
