Edgar's story

Edgar is an individual who has had to go through a great deal of adversity in his life. However, his desire to succeed has allowed him to overcome difficulties and continue moving forward with his family. Edgar is a single parent with three children, as the children's mother abandoned them some time ago.

Because he had to start generating greater income to be able to support the household expenses, Edgar decided to set up his business, where he sells drinks and alcoloholic beverages to his customers.

Edgar had a time with many crises, as his town fell under the influence of armed groups, which for a long time made his sales very low. Thanks to his fortitude, he was able to get through that difficult time, and now he continues to run his business and generate the income he needs for his household.

Because the refrigerator where he stores his business's drinks is in a condition where it needs to be replaced, Edgar is seeking a loan that will offer him the chance to purchase a refrigerator for storing his drinks, because the refrigerator he has now needs to be replaced.

Edgar hopes that in this way he can serve his customers better, as he will be able to offer cold drinks, that he had to stop selling some time ago.

In addition, Edgar hopes that with the extra income, he can offer his family a better quality of life and greater opportunities for progress.
