Carlos Humberto's story

Carlos Humberto is 25 years old and single. He lives in the South-Eastern part of Guayaquil, an area called Fortin. His house is made of cement, and he has electricity but no running water. Ten years ago, Carlos Humberto started working as a computer maintenance assistant for a computer firm. Soon after, he decided to start his own cyber café.

He opens every day in the morning, as soon as he returns from the university. Due to high delinquency in the area, he was forced to protect his cyber café with electronic bars. Customers can use the internet by paying $1 for every 2 hours.

Carlos Humberto plans to use his $1,000 loan for keyboards and programs. His goal for the future is to start a cyber café in the city center and to finish his studies at his university.
