Felix Antonio's story

Félix Antonio is 48 years old, married and has four children, ages 21, 17 and 14-year-old twins. His eldest son attends the university, making Félix very feel proud. Because his son wants to improve himself, Félix gives him unconditional financial support. For the past 14 years he has made a living selling seafood (shrimp, fish, shellfish, octopus and other items depending on demand). He stands out as an enterprising person with a desire to move up in life, as his business has grown so much that he sells to restaurants and in other parts of the country. Félix is requesting the loan because he wants to expand his market even more, purchasing vehicles for distribution, and in this way make headway for all of his children, who look to him as an example of self-improvement.
