Jose makes traditional sweets, including snacks, nougats, and sweet popcorn. He is requesting a loan to buy sugar, paper, brown sugar loafs, a hundred-weight of popcorn, and a cylinder of gas. With the help of the loan, he will be able to purchase everything necessary to be able to work. His dream is to have the capital to continue working and to buy all necessary things without any problems.
