Cleto Marcelino's story

Cleto Marcelino is 70 years old. His business is making and selling tortillas. He has been looking for a way to support his family for more than 20 years. Cleto is an entrepreneurial man. He is his own boss and he wakes up early every morning so that he can offer warm tortillas to his customers. He would like this loan to buy corn, bags, firewood, lime and a 'comal' (special pan for making tortillas). He pledges to make his repayments in full and on time.
