Mario's story

Mr. Mario R. is 31 years old. He has been married for 11 years to Ms. Florentina Gimenez, who is 43 years old. She works as an independent hairdresser and manicurist and also does therapeutic massage. The couple has one 10-year old son who is in the sixth grade.


Mr. R. worked at a firm for more than 5 years but when it was sold off, he used his small savings to launch his own business selling clothes and shoes, among other things.


The dream of this couple is that their son can go to university and have the academic preparation to have a better future.


The client is requesting the loan to buy jeans, shirts, T-shirts and sports shoes to increase his stock and fill his clients' orders.
