Mauricio Rodríguez González is married and has a daughter who is older and now lives away from home. His wife works attending to customers in a hardware store. Mauricio owns and internet café called Multinet which is located in his home. He opened this business four years ago and has many customers as it is located in a well-traveled area. He is requesting this loan with the purpose of making an investment in computers for the internet café. The reason he gives for this is that if he has more computers he can offer more of his product and thus obtain better profits. His dream has always been to be able to establish an internet café in the center of the city as there is more business there.
