Cesar, 38 years old, has a small business selling fruits and lives in an urban area called "Suburbio." This area is called "Suburbio" because most of the inhabitants are small business owners.
He started this business nine years ago because when he was a boy he used to help his mother take care of the household bills with her fruit stand in the "Gran Colombia" market. After his mother's death, he wanted to continue on with her business so he set up his small fruit stand. He works from five a.m. to six p.m. selling fruit juices.
With the loan he wants to buy a variety of fruits to make juice and in the future he would like to have a fruit bar and buy a car to be able to transport his buisiness more easily.
