Juan Antonio's story

Juan is in a relationship, and his partner works at the bakery. He has three children, and one of them is dependent on him.

Juan works making and selling bread, which he learned from his parents. The bakery is located in his home, but he distributes bread to more than eight surrounding municipalities.

He gets up at 3:00 in the morning to start his work, and finishes distributing the bread at 4:00 in the afternoon. His partner, his children and two employees all help him with this work. In addition, he also raises bovine cattle.

He needs this loan to buy flour, jelly, eggs, yeast and butter, among other ingredients, to make and sell bread.

Juan dreams of growing his business, and he also hopes to buy a hay cutter for feeding his cattle.
