Inez Alfonso's story

Inez Alfonso, 54 years old, lives in the town of Jicaral. His wife is a homemaker because of a lack of opportunities, despite the need to have a source of income necessary in the family, since they have 7 children although only 1 still depends on them.

Inez had been teaching classes but since his salary was not sufficient is now concentrating on he running the grocery store business which he has had for over 10 years. To expand the business he wants to use this loan to buy rice, sugar, oil, and drinks. His wish is to keep this business active since it is the only way he has to provide for his family.
