Jafete's story

Jafete is 30 years old. He's a store clerk and has a 4-year-old son. He's married and lives in a house that he owns. He supports two siblings who live with him. With this amount he'll purchase a door, sand, iron, cement and rocks so he can continue his construction work. His plans for the future are to own a restaurant and acquire a plot of land that he can use for raising cattle and farming. He states that he pledges to repay the loan in a timely fashion and request more loans so he can achieve his projects.
