Rogelio R. is 65 years old and married to Rosa Estele Vera who works as a teacher. They have two children who are both students at university.

From the time he was very young, he was dedicated to business, working together with his father running a service station. After his father's death, he made the decision to start his own business selling farm supplies. His two children help him in the distribution of the orders, and now he has his own vehicle so that the distribution is quick and large scale. Rogelio says that one of his dreams is to see both sons graduate. They are very responsible and hardworking.

The loan will be used to buy the supplies from wholesalers, which will enable him to increase the variety of his products and obtain better discounts.
