Carlos, 56, is a teacher and has been working for the last ten years. He has no dependent children and is currently having problems with his wife. Carlos works at a school that’s quite far from his house; it’s 45 minutes away. He uses public transportation to get around but sometimes when there are strikes and street demonstrations which are quite frequent he’s unable to get to work. Carlos owns a car but it’s not in good running order and he thinks that he’d even be able to put it into work as a taxi but to do so he needs a loan to repair it to be able to get around all the obstacles that impede his getting to work as well as having an opportunity to improve his quality of life.
