Erminger Gardel's story

Erminger is 57 years old, married, and has two adult children who live independently. He started looking for work five years ago but, owing to his age, nobody would give him a job. He decided, therefore, to set up his own business. Erminger currently has a general store. He works alone, from Monday to Saturday, serving in his business from 8.00am to 10.00pm. He would like to use his loan to buy rice, sugar, milk, etc. His dream is to be able to build his own home and fix up his business.
