This week, we are very lucky to chat with Lenny, a Venezuelan entrepreneur in the food and catering industry. Lennys has a background in academics, teaching Engineering at several institutions in Equador. Investors have 12 days to help fund her small business loan, which runs for 12 months @ 28.85% p.a.
Let’s meet Lennys!
B: Hi Lennys, thank you for taking the time to do this interview. Could you start of by telling us if you run a business? If so, what kind of business is it and what should investors know about it?
L: My business is food , I am Venezuelan , and my husband Colombian, and we have a restaurant together in Ecuador where we have been living for a year. With the power of social network, we now want to reach more people offering catering and delivery through internet!
B: What was your first experience with bitcoin? How is bitcoin perceived in Latin America?
L: We met bitcoin in 2013 and since then we are convinced that it is a reliable currency and 100 % safe , although in Latin America still there is not enough openness to this type of currency, however , for whom we trust and in countries where banks do not usually give this type of loans in dollars, it is a great opportunity.
B: What do you hope to achieve with your small business loan and why did you choose Bitbond over a bank?
L: With this loan we want to invest in a well-designed website that offers products and services catering and delivery in our city. Bitcoin gives us the opportunity to send payments to suppliers and purchase products and cheaper supplies via the Internet. We chose Bitbond because it is a friendly and safe platform with a fast verification process.
Banks currently provide loans to businesses with years in the market , hardly help with microcredit or those who are beginning to invest in their own businesses. Bitbond gives hand to begin to crystallize dreams!
B: What is your favorite feature on Bitbond? What features do you think are missing?
L: I love the “date day finance ” and for the opportunity to become future investors ! Add Forum ( live chat) for lenders and borrowers!
B: What would you want potential investors to know about your loan?
L: Investors who decide to support our business should know it is a safe investment. I am an Industrial Engineer, MSc in Biomedical, currently teaching Engineering in two institutions of Ecuador. I am a responsible person with the ability to repay the funds with my monthly salary, and the terms Bitbond offer a great opportunity for both investors and for us. So please take a minute and visit our loan!
B: What do you think the future holds for bitcoin? Is it the modern-day equivalent of the internet or will it fall flat on its face?
L: Bitcoin is the the present and future, it will be consolidated as the most commonly used form of payment processing, investing and savings to the web currency!
B: As a business owner or an employee, does your place of work accept bitcoin? If not, what do are the chances of that changing?
L: We have not begun to receive bitcoin as payment of our users, but for food shopping online would be an opportunity to implement it!
Thank you Lennys for an excellent interview! 12 days remain for investors to take part in her small business loan.
