Carlos Alberto's story

Thirty-five year old Carlos is a fighter who, due to the poor economic situtation that faced his family, decided to become independent and start his own business where he sells a variety of mens and womens clothing. He works everyday to sell these products to old and new customers.

Carlos is currently responsible for the finances of his family and he works day after day in the hope of providing them with a better quality of life, something which has motivated him to get ahead. However, Carlos is now requesting a loan which will allow him to generously stock his business. This will not only attact more customers thanks to the quantity and variety of his goods, but the quality of his service will also set him apart from the other vendors in the sector.

He dreams of having a store that will generate a steadier income, in turn providing him and his family with the peace of mind of being financially secure.
