Mr. Bernardo Solis is 52 years old and has been married to Mrs. Angelina Santa Cruz, also 52 years old, for 29 years. The couple has one child, who is already married and currently lives with his own family. Bernardo has a food stand, and began this venture in the year 2000 with a small amount of money from his wife, who has had a boutique for 15 years. Today Bernardo has a well-formed clientele, thanks to the great, personalized service her offers, not to mention the great variety and quality of the products he sells. He is asking for a loan to buy products such as chicken, sausages and salamis, rice, and cheese, since these are the products that are demanded the most.
