Oscar's story

Oscar continues to work at a discothèque in the capital, but he has gone through many changes in his life. He previously lived at his mother’s small house, which was better for the common welfare of his family. Today he and his wife have moved to his father-in-law’s house where he has set up a small refreshment stand and snack bar that sells tacos, hamburgers, and fried plantains with cheese. His goal is to save enough money so that he can buy his own property and provide stability for his family.

With this new loan, Oscar will invest more into his business. He hopes to buy greater quantities of food, flavored soft drinks, plates, glasses, spoons, forks, tablecloths, tables, and small advertisements to attract new customers. Oscar hopes to accomplish this goal and grow his business. His wife manages the business at night since he leaves for work in the afternoon. His job provides a fixed source of income.
