José Paulino's story

José Paulino S. P., 56, lives in Mejicanos with his wife and two sons. He has a grocery store where he sells food and basic needs items. In addition, his wife makes tamales that José goes out to peddle. He is very well-known in the area because he has had his store for over 10 years; he is also very sought-after for the tamales that he sells. José is requesting funding with which to buy stock items for his store because, even though he has had the store for many years, he still lacks many basic products that, if he stocked them, his sales would improve and his clientele would increase. José's wish, therefore, is to have a well-stocked store so that his earnings will increase thus benefitting his family.
