Cesar Augusto's story

Cesar, 26, is an entrepreneur who decided five months ago to start a business, with the aim of earning additional income to supplement what he receives in his current job. Cesar works during the morning hours in his store, and in the afternoon, leaves someone in charge.

Thanks to the training Cesar has received in his current job, he has been able to improve his store. Cesar wishes to buy stock such as rice, cooking oil, brown sugarloaf, personal hygiene products and home products. He also wants to buy a display case and chairs for his store.

Cesar's dream is to see his business grow, and be well-established in the neighborhood; with the aim of leaving his current half-time job and being able to work full-time in his business. Cesar also hopes to provide his family with a better quality of life.
