Anastacio
Anastacio comes from the city of Parras, in the state of Coahuila. He emigrated to the state of Nuevo León at a young age, in search of better opportunities, and put down roots in the municipality of Santa Catarina. He started working in a bakery as an apprentice, and then became a baker himself. He made a lot of sacrifices in order to set up a tiny bakery of his own. He then bought a bicycle and started to sell bread in the streets, helping his business grow. Some time after his bakery became well-established, he left it to his older son and set up a small fruit and vegetable shop with his wife. Anastacio buys fruits and vegetables that are still edible but that are discarded by supermarkets, and sells them at low prices to people with very low income. Anastacio is very happy to be able to help so many people in his town. He asks for this loan to buy wooden stands on which to place the produce so as to help customers choose and buy it easily and quickly, thus bringing them better service.
