Javier Francisco's story

Javier is best known for being responsible, as well as for his kind and smiling personality that has made the customers of his small grocery store feel comfortable for six years now.

Javier is 50 years old and widowed. He has a 10-year-old daughter, who every day dresses in her blue and white uniform to go to school.

Although this kind man was not able to go to university himself, it is his dream to be able to see his young daughter go to university, and for this he works very hard to grow his business, which he plans for his daughter to inherit.

Javier started with a clothing business in the market.

Then he decided to save money so he could open his own grocery store.

His goal is to continue investing in his business, for which he is requesting this loan to buy more toothbrushes, milk, soft drinks, bread, sugar and other products.

The loan will help him increase his inventory, along with shipments he receives from Spain. He hopes to increase his sales and income, so that he can achieve all of his goals with his daughter.
