Franklin Jehovany's story

Franklin, 20 years old, is a very respected and well-known person in the community. He grew up with his parents who instilled in him good principles and taught him the business of fast food sales, since that has been their line of work for most of his life.

After having finished his basic education in the community school, his parents decided that the best for him would be to begin to develop his own business instead of continuing with further education. From an early age, young Franklin showed an interest in cooking while he completed his school work and household chores. He is already a very dedicated and disciplined young man, and in this way he has gotten ahead and now he runs his own business selling fast food in his community.

Franklin has 5 years of experience making fast food; it is a line of work that he learned from his parents who have spent part of their lives doing this business that today has become their primary source of income. So, at age 15, he started working as a waiter in his father's business, and in a short time he learned everything necessary and believed that the kitchen no longer held any secrets for him, and in this way he began his own business with his parents' support.

Young Franklin's enterprising and passionate spirit has brought him to secure a loan that will be invested in the purchase of metal tables and a large display refrigerator, which will improve and expand his business and provide better service for his customers, which will improve his income and give him the earnings to meet his loan commitments.

His dreams and aspirations have carried him further than the rural life in which he is immersed, for this reason the goals that he has are to expand his business and set up a branch in the center of town, that has a delivery service, and among his projects will be to renew the loan to purchase a vehicle which will serve him to travel and give his employees mobility.
