Juan has 8 years of experience in the business of selling ice creams. For six years he worked for a company, and for 2 years he was self-employed. Currently he works selling tamales, sweet breads, and "french bread", and travels to different parts of the country. Not long ago he started delivering newspapers.

He is asking for this loan so that he can buy ice cream, and a cooler and freezer to store his ice creams. He will also buy cones, glasses, serviettes, disposable spoons, cereal topping and peanuts so that he can restart his ice cream business. Don Juan knows this business very well and knows that it allows him to make a good income and provide economic security for his family. His wish is to get a griddle so he can make pupusas (corn tortillas).
