Mrs. Lorena is 30 years old and married. Her husband, Robert Chamorro, is 40 years old. They have three children. Their son is eight years old and their daughters are six and four, respectively.

Lorena and her husband own a grocery and butcher shop. He works with the supplies, and she works with the clients. Robert buys the animals himself, later he butchers and sells the meat in the same business. This process increases the business' income, because he acts as the conduit to sell other products such as noodles, rice, cooking oil, salt, tapioca, and other staples.

Lorena and Robert have developed a base of clients over the past five years, since they opened the store. They began this work by selling milk, and little by little they earned the capital to start their own business, which is now a well-supplied butcher shop and store.

The loan will go toward the purchase of cider, beer, and soda, as we're now getting closer to end-of-the year parties.
