Jorge León's story

Jorge is a humble, charismatic and hard-working man. He is 57 years old and a father to four children, whom he has helped to get ahead with hard-work and dedication. Jorge has worked as an independent businessman for 15 years. He started by selling merchandise such as clothes, shoes and other products, and later started to sell lottery ticks and other games. However, Jorge's wife took ill and was unable to do anything for several months and so Jorge had to leave his work in order to look after his children and household. Nevertheless he continued to sell lottery tickets in order to earn an income to survive. This loan will be used to re-start his business selling merchandise. Jorge will use the loan to buy clothes, perfumes and trainers allowing him to regain his former customers and improve his family income. With Jorge's desire to get ahead, motivated by the love for his family, he wants to continue fighting in order to have enough money to offer his family better well-being and a higher quality of life. He wants to look out for his children so that they might have a good education that will allow them to prosper in the future.
