Carlos Eduardo
Carlos, age 34, lives in Libertad, where he has a store that opened several years ago. He started the business when he one day observed that there was a school in front of his house, and there was no store in the surrounding area. He saw the opportunity, and he took advantage of it.

In the beginning he put forth the necessary diligence to get the hoped for results. He is happy to have done it. Now he is very well-known. In spite of being well-received, he does not get enough to cover his expenses.

Therefore, he does other jobs in order to be able to support himself. When he is not there, his sister helps him tend to the store. The products that he sells the most are colas, juices and snacks. This is because when they leave the school the students are his biggest customers.

Carlos will use the requested loan to buy inventory. In the future he hopes to be able to make his business grow in such a way that he is able to expand it.
