Mario Francisco's story

Mr. Mario Francisco S. V. is married and lives in the Las Conchitas district. His wife works as a teacher and helps with the expenses of the home and with the business. They have 3 children, two of whom are adults who work and live independently. As a family, they plan to add on to their house in the future, so that their oldest daughter can live there with her children.

It is for this business that he requested a loan to use to buy products to stock the store and increase earnings. This will help them to deal with their son's illness. The family's motivation for their daily efforts is to be able to deal with their young son's expenses.
