Esteban Vicente's story

Esteban is a fifty-year-old man with a beautiful family, including his wife and two children. He has a small hauling business; he has his own truck which he uses daily to offer his service.

He's been in business for a few years, and what's hard is that price of gas goes up every day, leaving him with little profit. His wife helps him out, having invested in a grocery store which offsets their expenses.

Esteban wants to use his loan buy some flooring and the supplies to install it in his house since what he has is in very bad repair and he wants the make the improvement to have better living conditions. His plans for the future include being able to invest more in the grocery store, which is a secure source of income.
