Mr. Bernardo O. is 50 years old and he buys and sells cattle to meat-packers and also occasionally buys milk cows. His business is very good since every week he's buying cattle. His highest sales days are before the weekends since the butchers buy meat then to sell in the local market and in stores in Cholutecca. Saturdays and Sundays are the busiest market days. At this point, he needs the loan to purchase livestock as a few months ago he had some problems that left him with no capital and he's trying to recover from his losses.
