Jhon's story

Jhon is 26 years old and lives in a town near a city, where he runs an internet cafe. The business began after Jhon was laid off from a previous job. He father offered phone service to people who lacked it. Jhon saw an opportunity to add internet service to that business, which already had a customer base. Jhon also offers photocopying and transcription services seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. He hopes to expand the internet cafe at its current site and meet his goal of earning more income.

Jhon is currently applying for his first loan from the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, and will use the loan funds to to purchase computers. This investment will increase Jhon's chances of earning more income by expanding his services and attracting more customers.
