JUAN, who works very hard on his small farm all day, is motivated by what he and his wife may do with her business of selling food and drink, an activity which presents her with fantastic possibilities for prosperity in her location in a zone of great commercialization. Because of these possibilities, Juan invests the majority of the money he earns from selling his produce in the business of his wife, who dedicates herself to preparing appetizing lunches and serving frozen beverages, which are indispensible in such a warm place. In spite of the fact that Juan, through his achievements, brings home a considerable sum of money, the sum hasn't been sufficient for the growth and improvement of his wife's place of business, and he requires a loan to be able to invest in her business and make it properous.

Translated from Spanish by SheiL. Johnson, Kiva Volunteer.
