Emigdio Simon's story

Mr. Emigdio C. is 50 years old and is married to Mrs. Victorina Mendoza who is 46 years old; they have 6 children, 4 boys of 24, 20, 18 and 14 years old and two daughters who are 22 and 16 years old. The three eldest boys work and contribute to the household account and the youngest are in secondary school.

Mr. Emigdio for 26 years has worked cutting and selling charcoal. He buys the products in different cities in the interior of the country and sells them by distributing them in paper bags of 2 kg and in rubber bags of 1 kg.

The products mentioned are sold in businesses in the area of Villa Elisa y Ñemby.

The loan requested will be used to buy greater quantities of charcoal so that this way he can buy it at a cheaper price and earn greater profits for his merchandize.
