Carlos's story

Carlos, who is currently 53 years old, lives in his own house, located in the south-east zone of his community. Carlos lives with his 22-year-old son. For many years, Carlos has made his living from the trade of carpentry, and he performs all kinds of related jobs. His workshop is located in the house where he lives. Truthfully, he has substantial competition because there are other carpenters, but because of his experience, location, quality, and punctuality with his work, he has a lot of clients. Carlos also owns a motorcycle, which he rents daily, in order to receive regular revenue. Carlos used his loan to buy a 1G brand computer for $720 and used the rest of the money for the purchase of drill bits and wood. This is Carlo's third loan, and he paid off all his previously loans punctually. He has not received a loan from any other financial institution.
