Primitivo's story

Primitivo was able to use a 15,900 peso loan to buy a large toaster, a blender, ham, cheese, bread, vegetables and other supplies for his snack bar. Primitivo opened his snack bar a year ago encouraged by his sister who has always told him that he makes the most delicious sandwiches she’s ever tasted.

Primitivo is divorced and has a 23-year-old son and a granddaughter. He wants his business to make progress and become well-established in the community so that he can be sure to have a sustainable means of support.
