View original language description ↓
Sr. Enrique Martínez is 53 years old and is married to 49-year old Venancia Cáceres. They have four children aged 27, 25, 22, and 19. The eldest is employed in a well-known business in the city, and the others are university students in Business Administration and Accounting.



Enrique raises and sells cattle. He began this work in 1972 when he was still single. After getting married, he continued with the same work but with the help of his family. A year ago he opened his own butcher's shop located on the main street of the town.



His butcher's shop is one of the biggest in the city with a large number of clients who shop there every day for meat and meat products. Currently the couple's main objective is for their children to complete their university education so that one day they can manage and expand the business started by their father.



Enrique is asking for a loan to buy cattle to raise and then sell the meat in his butcher's shop, and in this way satisfy the big demand for his products.
