Mauricio Sebastian's story

This is Mauricio, who lives with his mother and siblings in a rented house toward the south of the city. In his home, everyone works to obtain income and thereby support the household. Mauricio works selling prepaid phone cards and chips on the streets of the city, but he wants to expand his business to sell phone accessories. Therefore, he is requesting his first loan of $500 with which he wants to invest in more merchandise and thereby obtain more income for his household.
