Carlos Mario's story

Carlos is married and has three children. For an income to pay for his family’s expenses he has a hut where he sells sweets and ice cream, and thanks to this his family can enjoy a good quality of life. Carlos started to work when he was very young and because of all the experience that he has acquired, he has been able to better know his customers, how to sell, and thus to have a good business. Since he came from a poor family, it’s been difficult for him to get ahead on his own since he had to help support his family, but now that he is married and has his own children, his financial situation has improved a little. This has allowed him to have a better quality of life. Thanks to his great effort, his sales have been increasing and that is why he is asking for a loan to buy sweets, snacks, ice cream and other products that have been selling out.
