William Alonso's story
William is a clerk and an owner of a sweet-shop. He lives with his wife and their two children, who are 9 and 3 years old. He has been a clerk for 9 years and he opened the sweet-shop one year ago. William is requesting the loan to purchase materials for the sweet-shop such as sugar, cinnamon and food coloring. With this loan, he will have greater availability to make sweets for sale. William's goal is to have his own store in the city center, which would allow his business to grow and generate greater sales.
