Arnulfo
Arnulfo is 34 years old, studied at a technical college, and is single. He lives in a peaceful community known for its national festivals. The inhabitants come from the "mazahua" indigenous tribe and keep up their mother tongue and brightly-coloured traditional clothes. Arnulfo has had a grocery store for six years. It first belonged to his grandfather, who worked there for 50 years. However, when he died, no one worked in the shop for three years. Arnulfo had promised his grandfather that he would keep the shop just as his grandfather had always kept it. Previously, Arnulfo's grandfather's shop was in a house made of tiles and wood, with adobe walls (a material made with earth. Arnulfo's grandfather build the house, and it is one of the oldest in the community. The shelves, doors, and window frames were all made of wood. For Arnulfo, this house has a lot of character, and he wants to keep it forever as it was a present from his grandfather. Arnulfo has been running the shop for five years and he is very happy with it. He has always liked working in sales as his father was a businessman too. On this occasion Arnulfo is applying for a loan in order to buy items such as milk, bread, eggs, refreshments, detergents, and more. He needs this loan to buy more merchandise and so that the business does not collapse. Arnulfo's current challenge is dealing with competition. Arnulfo lives in the centre of his community but there are also two very big shops. Arnulfo always tries to be very attentive with his customers so that they become loyal. Arnulfo has never thought about leaving the business because he promised his uncle that he wouldn't. Arnulfo's father used to have a ranch with many animals and Arnulfo would like to have more animals, such as pigs, oxen, and fighting cocks. However, unfortunately, he had pigs who became infected with a virus, and he was unable to continue with this work. Arnulfo would like to have more animals in the future and he is sure that he will manage it with the saving he will earn from the grocery store, from selling gas, and from selling roosters.
