Ariel Fausto
Ariel and his wife Nancy sell prepared food for a living. Their consumers are the drivers of the 42 Line, as they are located in a stand set up just for their business at one of the line's stops. After intense work selling food every day, Ariel now has a good amount of savings. As the cost of transporting his food is high, Ariel is asking for a loan to buy a vehicle. This will make transporting the food easier, as the distance from his home to his stand on the 42 Line's stop in the city of Santa Cruz is long. He will buy the vehicle partly with his savings and the rest with the loan. This will make his work easier, increase his profits, and create financial stability. Ariel is very invested in working and getting his budding family ahead.
