Angel Antonio
Mr. Angel Antonio Z. is 64 years old, married, and has 6 children, 2 of whom are still under his care; the others have already formed their own families.

Angel works selling groceries and other items such as corn, rice, beans, lard, sugar, flour, tomato paste, coffee, pepper, salt, gravel, soap, bleach, and other basic items.

He is asking for a loan to be able to buy more merchandise since he does not have much capital. He wishes to buy in bulk and have plenty of products in his store. The business is located a bit out of the way and the businesses from which he buys his products only pass by once a week, making his sales a bit more complicated, as he will often run out of merchandise and have to wait for the suppliers' carts to stop by in order to restock his store. This is why he needs the loan.
