Juan
Juan is 53 years old. He has been married to 48-year-old Bernada for more than 32 years. They have five children together. Two of their children are school age and three are already adults and, thanks to their parents, have already become professionals.

Twenty years ago, Juan set up a small grocery store in his home where his wife worked while he bought animals to slaughter and then sold their meat in the store. The family is currently working together as theirs is the biggest and busiest shopping place in the town. Thanks to this business, they have been able to support themselves and help each other out.

Juan would like to buy more animals to slaughter as he makes a lot of sales at this time of year. This is why he is requesting a loan. He is very grateful for this opportunity to make progress that he is receiving.

Juan tiene 53 años de edad, está casado hace más de 32 años con Sra. Bernarda de 48 años de edad, tienen 5 hijos juntos, 2 en edad escolar y 3 hijos que ya son mayores de edad y gracias a sus padres han logrado una profesión.
Hace 20 años empezó con una pequeña despensa en su domicilio, donde la Sra. atendía mientras él se dedicaba a comprar animales para faenarlos y luego vender la carne en la despensa. Actualmente se encuentra trabajando la familia junta, ya que es el centro de compra más importante y concurrida de la ciudad, gracias a este negocio han podido salir adelante y ayudarse los unos a los otros.
Ahora desea comprar más animales para faenarlos puesto que tiene muchas ventas en esta época, y es por ello que solicita el crédito. Esta muy agradecido por esta oportunidad de progreso que esta recibiendo.
