Carlos Eduardo
Carlos Eduardo started a business once he received a loan. He started by buying a photocopier to offer a copy service. Little by little he bought products like pencils, notebooks and notepads, but this was not enough to satisfy his customers.

His greatest obstacle he faced was his age; he found it tiring going from place to place to source his products. This did not stop his business.

Carlos now lacks sufficient capital and is therefore seeking a loan to buy a variety of products. He hopes to expand his business to offer better service at a lower cost.
