Joel Esau
Joel is a young 26 year old man who studied through ninth grade. He is single and lives with his mother and three brothers.

Joel owns a store that he opened three years ago in his home. His mother ran the business previously, but when Joel's father died, his mother decided not to continue with the store. Joel decided to take on the business, since sales were good, and his mother still assists when he is away from home. He also has a corn grinder for making tamales.

Joel plans to use his loan to buy products to supply the story, including the following: rice, beans, oil and sugar, as well as candies and snacks like churros and sweets. He also offers corn meal grinding since he has the only grinder in the neighborhood and thus everyone who lives in the area visits to use it.

Joel's dream is to have a fully stocked store, with products that his customers want, and in that way to make them very satisfied when they visit since when they come to use the grinder they do a lot of shopping at the store. Also, when he decides to marry, the business will help him provide a better quality of life for his children.
