Carlos is 35 years of age, unmarried and without children. He lives in the F. Island region, in the city of Carapeguá. He works as a traveling salesman of many types of goods since about 20 years ago, and also works on a ranch with his family.

Carlos is a gentleman, who is hard-working and enterprising, and who has increasingly progressed as a businessman. Today he already owns to two motorcycles and some cattle, which might serve as collateral and which he'll save to use in a future transaction. Due to his past loans, he's been able to succeed, thanks to his good administration and sacrifice.

With this loan, he plans to purchase sports shoes and blankets / quilts for re-sale.
