German
German is 50 years old and divorced, living alone in a rented room. He is an honest man who has been working for a business installing parquet floors for nine years. He has great talent for this work, and with his earnings is able to meet his expenses. German does not have a set schedule since contracts come in sporadically. However, when he is contracted out he works hard for three weeks or more. It is work that requires great precision. The most difficult part is that it is not stable employment and, at times, he receives many contracts but there are also weeks at a time when he may not receive any work. German wants to be a useful man, and knows that life still provides many opportunities which he wants to be prepared to confront. With the money from the loan, he wants to buy his own tools for parquet installation so he can also do work independently. In the future, German would like to have his own business in his current line of work but also would like to start another enterprise which he has yet to decide on.
