What he likes about his business is the large number of people that visits his stand because this means a good movement of money and he does well because of it. Now that the Christmas season is approaching sales will increase. Because of this he hopes to stock up on merchandise and to be able to rent another stand to insure a larger input of money.

The first time he invested he earned well and it was all thanks to being able to get a loan from the institution so he hopes to be able to continue to work together. He will use the requested amount to buy merchandise in the city of Lima to start setting up for the Christmas season because profits will increase.
