Santos Omar
Santos, 36, lives with his wife and two children in his own house. He works selling fruit and vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes, onions, strawberries, bananas, oranges and chilies, among others. He has been in business for ten years which has given him much sales experience that allows him to earn the best profits. The place he sells at is very strategically located for this activity and is very crowded with people since he has a large clientele that prefers him because his produce is fresh, well-priced and of high quality with excellent service. Santos wants to make a new investment but does not have sufficient capital to back him up which is why he’s asking for a loan to buy more fruit and vegetables at wholesale to earn higher profits to be able to give his family a better life.
