Jose Lupario's story

Mr. Santos Lupario F. lives in the Nueva Esperanza neighborhood of the city of Nacaome. He is 25 years of age and has a one-year-old daughter.


He and his wife run their own general store. Starting from 4am, they go out to sell baleadas (wheat flour tortillas filled with beans and other ingredients), coffee, oatmeal, and other breakfast foods. The rest of the day, he attends to his customers at the general store.


Santos is requesting a loan so that he can stock up his general store. He states that he is happy because he can see that his business is growing little by little.
