Dennis Alexander's story

Dennis Alexander is 21 years old, single, and a contract worker. He lives at his parents’ house in Manta, one of the most important cities on the Ecuadorian coast in terms of business and tourism.

Dennis Alexander is known for being a cheeful and friendly young man. At the same time he is hardworking, since he strives each day to earn an income each day. On occasion, what he earns from his work is not sufficient to cover certain expenses. Dennis Alexander decided to continue a professional driving course that lasts six months. However, he needs a loan in order to enroll in the course and pay for materials that are needed.

This loan will be used to pay the cost of the driving course. His dream is to finish the course.
