Daniel lives in the village of Armenia in Sonsonate, in the west of the country. 5 years ago he set up his own business. He now runs a shop and general store from his own home, which is more cost effective than a separate location. His wife, Josefina, helps him manage the business. In addition to running the store, Daniel is also in charge of the house, and he covers the monthly costs for the family. He is requesting a loan to purchase merchandise such as cereals, drinks and detergents, to expand his inventory and offer his customers a greater variety of products.
