Mauricio M. G. is 46 years old and lives in Santa Tecla, which is in the district of La Libertad. He is a single father with 16 year old twin daughters, who are both students. Mauricio had found it difficult to care for his children and also leave for work in order to support them. However, with a lot of effort and assistance he received along the way, that thought is just a memory. Eleven years ago, Mauricio had the idea to establish a business at home so that he could always look after his daughters. He opened a food buffet and now has a wide range of customers.

Today he is requesting a loan to buy ingredients to help him increase his production as well as his profits.
