Señor Armando is 35 years old. He is a businessman. His wife, Señora Raquel, is 34 years old and is a teacher. Their marriage has two children, and they are the major motivation for the efforts of this couple.

He also comments that his wife always helps him, and that in this way they have been able to improve their living conditions and those of their family. The loan that he is requesting is to be able to buy ball-and-socket joints, shock absorbers, brake pads, lubricants, and other spare parts to sell. He also appreciates the opportunity that he is receiving to continue growing.
