Epifanio
Epifanio is 39 years old, lives with his 37 year old wife, Gladis, and his 15 year old daughter, Sintia. Epifanio’s family is supported by his work as a cyclist, an activity that he has been doing for the past 10 years. Having obtained his own tricycle 2 years ago, he has worked tirelessly to support his family along with his wife who works in sales. He starts his daily routine around 7:00 in the morning and works until 7:00 or 8:00 at night in order to earn enough income. The most difficult part is the physical effort that his job demands, but there is no reward without effort and this is why he strives to do his job with pleasure. Epifanio does not want his family to suffer discomforts and wants to offer them the best so they have a future of better opportunities. With the requested funds, he will fix the flaws of his tricycle and will buy merchandise at wholesale for his wife to sell. With this capital, they can establish a small grocery store in their house.

Epifanio quiere que su familia no sufra incomodidades, es así que quiere ofrecerles lo mejor, para que tengan mejores oportunidades futuras. Con el dinero solicitado arreglará algunos imperfectos de su triciclo y comprará mayor mercadería para que su esposa comercialice, y así juntar capital para poner una pequeña tienda de abarrotes en su casa.
