Raul Alfredo's story

Raul, age 46, lives in his own home with his wife and two children. He is a responsible, hard-working and honest man. He works in his own bakery where he makes sweet bread and French bread. He goes out to sell it in the neighbourhoods near where he lives. Raul is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of flour, butter, tins, and everything necessary for producing more bread. This improvement project for his bakery is very important for him because this is how he will improve his quality of life and that of his family.
