Joselito Roberto's story

Joselito Roberto and his family live in Manta city, a place attractive to tourists for its beautiful beaches and varied gastronomy.

He is a very hard-working man who earns a living which he gives to his family, thanks to his hard work as a businessman. But in spite of this, on occasion his expenses are greater and that is exactly whey he seeks a loan, as his son needs a computer in order to do his work and tasks in order to become a great professional.

This loan is to buy a computer. His dream is to give his family the best.
