Justin's story

Justin is a married man with three children, all in school. He is thirty-seven years old and has been working for almost ten years already, in a neighborhood of the city. He has a cyber café and does maintenance on the machines. He is applying for a loan to buy equipment that will be used in his business: machines. With the profits he will reinvest in his business, expand it, and he will be able to improve the standard of living of his family.
