Edwin Javier's story

For the past three years, Edwin Vásquez has been a traveling salesman dedicated to selling small goods in the transportation terminal in the city of Danli. He sells a wide variety of products that he gets from the city of Tegucigalpa and travels once a week to buy the merchandise. Edwin is a man who has known how to gain clients through the friendliness with which he attends to them. He also sells products for the kitchen, such as cookware, which he sells in different parts of the city. He sells these products on credit, so he leaves one day a week to claim these payments. He will use this credit to buy various goods and cookware to sell. Edwin is married, and his wife is a housewife. They have three children in elementary school that depend on them economically.
