Sebastian's story

Sebastian M. is 64 years old. He lives in Aldea El Comercio, in the city of San Lorenzo. He sells products for popular consumption. He has a general store in his home. Sebastian is a senior, and this is the only job that he can do to earn a living.

Sebastian is requesting a loan to stock up his store, which currently doesn’t have a large variety of products.

Sebastian lives with his wife, and they are both happy in their home.

When Sebastian has to go out to buy some merchandise for his business, his wife takes care of the business.

This is the only source of income between them.

His goal is to equip his store and have it well stocked.
