Sergio Andrés's story

Sergio is 20 years old. He is a young entrepreneur who, motivated by his desire to get ahead and with the support of his family members, started his own business, a delicatessen and liquor store. He works there Thursday through Sunday, until the early morning hours. His place offers an atmosphere that where it is nice to spend some time. He will use the loan that he is requesting to buy a sound system, tables, chairs, an awning, and stock at whole-sale price (baked goods, soft drinks, and liquors). This will allow him to improve his location and he will be able to offer better service to his customers. He will also have better sales and improve his income. Sergio, with his dynamism and drive, wants to continue working with discipline and perseverance so that he can buy his own larger location. There he would be able to offer employment opportunities and guarantee better profitability so he can continue re-investing in his business and also contributing to his household budget.
