Edison Raul's story

Edison is a 40-year-old man. He is considered enterprising, jovial, and charismatic with sufficient strength to get ahead. He lives in the northern sector of the city of Tulcán in a family house with his parents and siblings. He works in his own carpentry shop that he started with the help of his father, who taught him everything he knows about carpentry.

Edison has worked with great effort to be able to acquire some tools and better equip his workshop, but he is still needs to buy an industrial sander, a router, an electric saw, and raw materials for making furniture. This is why he is requesting to increase his working capital. It will allow him to provide a better service to his customers, improving his income so that he can take care of his parents, who are now older and cannot work.
