Edison Gustavo's story

Edison is twenty-seven years old, and lives with his family in Los Vergeles, an urban region north of the city. Edison has been a mechanic for ten years. He learned his trade when he was very young since he liked to work and earn his own money. When he got married and took on responsibilities he decided to open his own repair shop. His business is located on the patio of his house, where he works every day from eight in the morning until six in the evening. He has very little free time and is wasting his effort because he lacks equipment. He would like to remedy this situation, which is why he is requesting a loan. In the future, he would like to be able to purchase an automobile to start a taxi service and improve his finances.
