Atilano's story

Sr. Atilano is a long-standing client of the bank. He and his wife, Sra. Silvia, live in a house they own in the city of Luque. He has operated a TV repair business since 1972.
He has many loyal customers because he has provided a useful and reliable service for many, many years now. He wants to continue growing the business, he says, because it is provides the income he needs to support his family.
Sr. Atilano is applying for a loan that he will use buy the supplies--screws, solder--he needs to work. The investment will provide him with a better operating margin and, in turn, a higher income for his family.
