Santos's story

Mr. Santos M. is married to Mrs. Ramona Avila. She is a housewife and they have four adopted children. The Morans are not able to have their own children, so they decided to adopt.

Mr. M. sells soft drinks and purified water in bottles and in plastic packaging. He sells them wholesale at his mini-store. Several small grocery stores and restaurants in the area buy the products. This business provides the income necessary to cover the family’s expenses.

Mr M.’s products have high demand and the loan is needed to buy and maintain a larger stock, so he does not run out of the product very quickly. Also there is a charge every time the distributor truck goes to the mini-store.
