Gustavo is a young single man with a daughter. He would like to marry the mother of his child so that she can grow up in a stable home, but at the moment he is living with his parents. He tells us that he would like to take his parents to live in a more comfortable home such as a small apartment.

Gustavo assembles magic boxes which are comprised of educational games. He buys the CD for the game directly from the distributor, which is why he travels once a month. He works with a printer who makes and prints the boxes, then he and his siblings assemble the boxes, including the materials for the games. At the moment Gustavo is travelling to the centre of the country to try and enter his product into the market. So far it has been widely accepted and in high demand because of the innovativeness that comes from being a magic game that is both entertaining and mentally stimulating. He believes that this is a new product that does not have much competition.

Gustavo will use this loan for working capital which will allow him to buy the supplies required to assemble the magic boxes. One of his goals is to increase his business by producing other material for younger children.
