Frnacisco Benito
Francisco Benito is 51-years-old. For the past 28 years he has been in business making parts with his lathe. It was very hard when he started out because he didn't have enough income, and while he did have some of the tools he needed, he didn't have enough to make the parts people were asking for. This didn't discourage Francisco, though, and he sought help through loans, which have given him just the help he needs. He is currently requesting a loan for working capital, so he can buy materials to make parts. His wish is to continue with his work because his stability depends on it.
