Gustavo Adolfo's story

From a very early age, Gustavo has transported materials. His family has made a living this way for several generations. Thanks to this, Gustavo has a great knowledge in the city, and this lets him make good sales. Gustavo works hard every day with the motivation of taking good care of his wife and 6-year-old son. His wife is also 8 months pregnant. With Gustavo's job, he generates the necessary income for his home, and he offers his family a good quality of life. He transports merchandise in a horse-drawn cart, but he faces the problem of his horse being sick. This is why he is looking for a loan that will offer him the opportunity to buy a horse and maintain his cart. Gustavo hopes that in this way, his monthly income won't be affected by buying a new horse, and he will be able to keep generating the income that he needs to support his home. Gustavo's dream is to be able to keep making income for his family, to have his own home in the future, and to take good care of his children.
