Carlos Emilio's story

Carlos Emilio R. Cadenas is 29 years old. He is the single father of one school-age son. Carlos runs a car wash. He used to work washing vans, spending many hours enduring the sun and the heat. These conditions did not dampen Carlos' enthusiasm, and later on he lost his job due to a change in administration. He then decided to start his own business in his home. He started off with few clients but now has many thanks to his good service. Carlos' goal is that his business improves enough to fully serve his customers. This loan will contribute to the purchase of a vacuum, towels, and barrels for storing water.
