Alexander
Alexander brings a display cabinet outside his house and uses it to show his products. He works selling enchiladas, one of the most common dishes in the city. That is how he earns a living. Alexander is a humble resident of Estelí, he is 31 years old, and is a microcomputer operator by profession. He has also been in business for three years. He started his business with his own capital. He used to work at a local restaurant, and decided to use the money he saved from his job to set up his own business at home. This has been his first business venture, and he is managing to keep it going with support from his mother, who helps him see to his customers.
He is requesting the loan in order to purchase flour, meat, tortillas, oil, vegetables, and all the raw materials he needs to make his delicious enchiladas. He estimates the loan will be of help because he will be able to invest more in inventory so that he can satisfy his customers' demand. His plan for the future is to expand his business area and to one day have his own buffet, where he could offer a variety of food to his customers. His short-term goal is to own a home so that he can become independent. His aim is to live comfortably and manage to get ahead.
