Carlos
Carlos is married to Rosalina. They have 5 children, 3 of whom are still at primary school. The other two are older and have jobs.
Carlos has a well-stocked store, where his wife Rosalina works.
They began this business with some money that Carlos received as severance pay from a previous job.
In addition to having the store, Carlos also works as a security guard for an Itaipu-based firm. With the money he earns from this job, he is able to cover the household costs and provide for his children's education.
He explains that the only way of being able to develop the business is through loans, since it is very difficult to secure sufficient capital through other means. It is for this reason that he has requested the loan. He is a very responsible person, who wants to succeed. He has a jovial spirit and is enterprising. There is a little doubt that he will be able to achieve all the goals he has set himself.
