Arnulfo Del Transito's story

Arnulfo, who is 61, is a native of Granada. He is married and is the father of 4 children, all adults. He does topographical work, but 10 years ago he decided to set up a business. His first experience was with a grocery store, but later he closed it and decided to set up a business of selling beverages, which he distributes by the pack to grocery stores, distributors, and convenience stores. This business has allowed him to prepare his children -- in fact, one of them is a journalist -- since he considers that the best inheritance that he can leave them is to tend [to the business] and work hard every day to keep the business stable, since he wants all his children to have a professional career.

He is applying for the loan to buy bottled water, juices, and soft drinks wholesale. He wants to offer a greater variety of beverages of different brands.
