Andres
Andrés is a very hardworking and responsible man and this is the first time that he will be working with the institution. He tells us that he is 43 and has been married to María del Carmen for several years, together they have 5 children and 3 of them are dependent on them and still in education.

Andrés only obtained a secondary school education and has had a rotisserie for four years. He says he started his business because he used to be a carpenter and often found himself without work for periods of time. He decided to start his business, which was difficult to begin with as no-one offered him any support. Andrés had practically no knowledge of how to run his business, not even how to prepare the chickens. He tells us that in the beginning his chickens were raw and needed cooking, he often burned them and it took three months for him to learn. Along with the some of other experiences he has had, this may have been partly caused by the machine, as he began his business with a second-hand machine.

Andrés is requesting the loan to buy another machine as he is thinking about opening another rotisserie in another town. He tells us that the difficulties he has faced include his two accidents, the first of which happened because of his workload as he fell asleep at the wheel whilst driving at night, although the consequences have not affected his business nor his family, although his health has been affected and he has to spend a lot on medicines. In the accident he lost the van that he had only just bought and had to go back to an older van, which obviously could not hold as many chickens.

Andrés is used to taking the chicken to another town and spends around an hour en route. In his other accident, he experienced greater losses as he had to close a chicken shop in another town. Although this accident was not his fault, he was forced to pay for the lost materials from the other vehicle.

However, despite all of this, Andrés has a goal for his children to have a legacy so that they can live fully, but he would also like his businesses to do well enough to provide for him in his old age as he would not like to live with financial concerns.
