Eugenio and Eulalia are married with four older children. Three of them are independent and one still lives at home. Together the two have a farm which they work on, and they sell the food that they cultivate. With the money they made from selling their simple fruits and vegetables, the pair was able to invest in a truck in which to transport their goods door-to-door.

Now the couple is looking to expand their business even more and have a larger variety of fruits and vegetables than what they grow and sell. The loan they are asking for will be used for that purpose, to help them increase their sales and thus their income.
