Reynaldo Bismarck's story

Reinaldo's business is a hardware store. He opened this business 4 years ago thanks to his savings from his previous jobs as an electrician. His wife sells soft drinks and contributes in this way to pay the household expenses. He has two daughters; the eldest is married, the youngest, who is 10 years old, attends primary school.
With this loan he wishes to increase the supplies in his hardware store by purchasing pvc pipes, rubber and plastic clamps, assorted sockets, keys, hinges, fasteners, sandpaper, padlocks, screws, galvanized pipes and other items. In this way he will be able to offer a larger stock to satisfy his customers and increase his profit to benefit his family.
