He currently has a paid job in another company and his wife tends to the store. He is asking for 6,000 Lempiras to buy butter, chicken, soda, churros, bread, flour, cleaning products, etc. and to supply the business with a way to improve sales. His plans are to buy a plot of land to leave to his children, to fix up his house, and to have a good business.
