Héctor's story

Héctor O. is 49 years old. He is originally from the city of Roque González. He has been married to 50 year-old Petrona Fleitas for more than 23 years. They have five children: two are school age and the other three are already grown up, professionals and financially independent.

The grocery store that Héctor set up in his home 22 years ago now has an established customer base. Héctor also graduated as a teacher. He carries out this profession too which provides him with an additional income.

Héctor would like to buy more merchandise to increase his stock. In the month of December prices rise and with this purchase he will maintain his cost margin. He would like to increase his income so that he continue supporting his two youngest children so that they can become good professionals.
