Candido's story

Mr. Cándido is 58 years old and married, with five children. Only one of them still depends on him economically.
Mr. Cándido is an old settler in the area. He runs a food and book store out of his home, which is across the street from a school. Mr. Cándido would like a loan to increase his stock of merchandise. He needs to increase his income, and currently has many clients, but the space in his house is to small to accommodate them all. He is now constructing an extra room in his house in order to offer more space to his clients.
