Clicerio's story

Clicerio and his wife sell tamales. They sell their products door to door or sometimes to order. His wife is the one who makes the tamales and fills them with dozens of different fillings: some with cheese, some with meat, some with chicken. She makes these one week and the next week she will make 'chanchamitos' (traditional Mexican food) which are baked in a banana leaf. Clicerio goes out to sell the products in a special box to keep them warm so that their customers are satisfied with the service.

Right now, Clicerio can see that their business is bearing fruit and so he would like to invest in it so that it gradually grows. For this reason, he would like a loan to buy cornmeal, butter and other ingredients for making his products.
