Antia
Antia is 57 years old, and lives in the city of Nemby. He is married to Raquel, and together they have 5 children who are all grown and independent, but they help them when they can.

Antia has a small metalworking business where he makes steel furniture for all types of businesses, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, snack bars, supermarkets, etc. His business has an excellent location, because it is in a strategic spot.

He says that previously he worked as a driver for a company for about 15 years, during which time he did not have enough work. He decided to start working independently. At first, he only was buying metal shelves to resell, but this didn't give him a lot of earnings. Then he met a friend who was making these types of furniture pieces, and he started working with him. Later on, he acquired the necessary tools and started working on his own with the help of his family. Today, he has a family business, since all of his children work with him.

Antia is requesting a loan to buy metal, so that he can continue to make the furniture that he sells. He is grateful for the opportunity that he is receiving, as it will be very helpful to him.
