Rafael Antonio's story

Rafael Antonio G. C. is 35 years old. He lives in the Juan Ramón Padilla division. He is married and has a 16 year-old son who is studying at high school. His business is a small grocery store which he has had for 3 years. His wife supports him in running the business. It has become the main source of income for the G. family. Amongst the difficulties which they have faced has been an unexpected illness which hit the whole family. It is for his general store that he is requesting this loan so that he can purchase a larger inventory of groceries, dairy products, sweets, sodas, etc. He hopes for better sales and new sources of income to improve the socio-economic development of his son because he will soon start university and they hope to be able to be in a position to support him in his professional studies.
