Samuel Ricardo's story

Mr. Samuel is an old client who is in his sixth loan cycle. Samuel is a widower and has a daughter. He lives in the city of La Paz and sells music DVDs in various parts of the city of La Paz, such as in the southern and central zones, passing on foot by offices and at minibus stops and other commercial spots.

He will invest the loan in the purchase of toys since during the Christmas season he devotes himself to selling these products. The client has a stand at Christmas and goes out to sell in the city of La Paz.

Samuel works devotedly every day of the week and, according to the financial review that was done, he has a profitable business. He states that he will make his payments punctually as he has always done.
