Eladio's story

Señor Eladio is 53 years old. He is married to Señora Maria. They have two adult children who no longer depend on them; they have careers and are independent. Eladio has a grocery store and comments that his business is about 10 years old. He began to work independently thanks to his savings, which he accumulated from other jobs that he had in the past, such as security guard. Now Don Eladio and Señora Maria tend to the business, which, thanks to their efforts is competitive and is growing well. Señor Eladio is applying for the loan so that he can stock his business with the most popular items, such as flour, rice, pasta, beverages, and other items. He is grateful for the opportunity that he is receiving, since the loan will be a great help to his microbusiness.
