Jorge
Jorge has four years experience in his business of selling sandals as a traveling salesman. Since he was very small, 12 years old, he decided to become more independent of his family. He began to work only to support himself. He recieved the help of a friend, who loaned him the money in order for him to start working. He has had good success. He works every day of the week from 8am until 3pm.

Jorge wishes to invest the loan in the purchase of merchandise on wholesale. With this purchase he can make higher earnings. He hopes to make enough money to begin to travel to other areas to sell his products.

Jorge is separated. He is 57 years old and has one son who is 9, who goes to school. His son spends his mornings with his grandmother and his afternoons with Jorge, doing his homework. His wish is to give his son a better education. He also has a room to rent and wishes to make repairs in it so that the people who rent it can live without inconveniences.
