Building a Business Together

Jorge & Mariaines Finol, of Miami, FL, are relatively new to Primerica, having joined in May 2015. But they’ve already accomplished a lot. They opened their own office in February 2018 and earned Ownership in June 2020.1 “We are thrilled to now have a business that we can pass down to our children,” says Mariaines. “That’s one of the things that attracted us to Primerica. You can do something significant and involve your family in the whole process.”

“I was an elementary school teacher for years, and while I enjoyed that very much – being an important part of the children’s lives, teaching them important things, and, often being considered a part of their families — that wasn’t something I could share with my husband or my own children the way we can share building our Primerica business.”2

Mariaines says she and Jorge also enjoy being able to earn what they’re worth.3 “Teachers serve a very important function in our society, but they put in long hours and are underpaid. We control when and how much we work – and we’re doing it together!”

Serving Families

“In every business you start, you have to work hard and be organized. And that’s true with Primerica as well. But the difference is that you can help people in so many ways – and by helping those people, you build your business. Work hard and be organized in your financial life. Practice what you preach.”

“It took us a couple months after a friend of mine convinced us to let him come over and introduce Primerica to us,” laughs Jorge. “I’m not sure what we were waiting on.

I guess we needed to let the idea of us doing this roll around in our heads for a while! “And now that we’ve been building and working hard for five years, we can look back on the families we have helped. Hispanics have traditionally been underserved by the financial services industry. We’ve been able to reach out to many families in an easy and fun way to explain Primerica’s financial concepts, and the keys to getting them protected and better prepared for the future.”

Delivering Hope

“That’s one of the things that makes us most proud,” says Jorge. “Serving Main Street families is the heart of Primerica’s mission. And, in the relatively short time we’ve been in this business, we’ve helped a lot of families. Unfortunately, we’ve had to deliver two death claim checks to clients. Both were Hispanic and both were young – under 40 years old. It’s tough to see a family dealing with the loss of a loved one – but in that moment, we bring a check. We bring hope and stability to that family that they likely would not have had if we had not been there for them.”4

“We’re so happy and blessed, and we feel so lucky to be a part of a Company of Destiny, with great values, and strong, forward-looking leadership. Jorge and I both must give a shout out to our coaches, Willy and Lorena Naranjo, who provide vision and motivation to take things to the next level. It’s an answer to our prayers to be able to build something significant and be somebody to our family and our team — something that will last for generations to come. The blood that runs through our veins is red, white and blue … the Primerica colors!”
