Crescencio's story

Crescencio is 54 years old. He has been married to Aurelia for 35 years. They have a 16-year-old son who is in high school. Of course he had more children, but they don't depend on him anymore, because they are all married. He and his wife are practically the only ones living at his home now.
He manufactures sports clothing and woolen vests. This time he requests the loan in order to purchase supplies such as thread, measuring sticks, mesh and needles.
He says that he has already been in this business for 20 years; he learned it when he was very young.
The problems he faces come when sales are down because the weather is very hot.
Crescencio's only hope is to be able to support his son who's still in high scholl, because he would like his son to be a great professional.
"I'm very thankful for the help and the trust deposited in me".
