Carlos's story

Carlos is 26 years old, and works as a traveling vendor. Carlos is single, and lives with his mother, whom he takes care of. From a very young age, Carlos felt the importance of the responsibility of maintaining the household.

Carlos sells different items, such as clothes, shoes, and household goods, amongst other things. He gained his knowledge from his father, who died in a car accident 9 years ago.

Carlos sells his goods from door-to-door, and travels many kilometers everyday on his motorbike. He can count on a stable clientele, due to his variety of products, good prices, and ease of payment. A cousin also works with Carlos, who receives a commission for his sales. Carlos is requesting a loan in order to purchase more merchandise.
