    Mr. Angel Plata is 63 years old and has been married for 43 years. He and his wife have 9 children, two of which are still in school and living at home with them. Mrs. Plata is a housewife and works in their garden growing prickly pears (nopals), while Mr. Plata works in his grocery store that he opened four years ago, which is their only source of income. One of the challenges he faces is that he lives in the sparsely populated hills, so his store is a bit too far for many in the community. To attract more customers, Mr. Plata also makes warm, handmade tortillas to sell in his store. His reason for asking for the loan is so that he can purchase a wider variety of products to offer to his neighbors. Mr. Plata is hoping to increase his income substantially so that he will be able to build a store right in the middle of his community. Once he is centrally located, people won't have to go so far to make their purchases. He also wants to continue supporting his children with the rising costs of their studies, so that they can get good jobs in the future.
