Luis Roberto's story

Luis Roberto is 52 years old. He deals in recycled goods. He is very proud to do this work because it is not only of benefit to himself but also to the planet. He has worked in this business for 10 years, and it is the only way that he has to earn a living and support his family. Luis Roberto's greatest wish is to become a micro-entrepreneur, and for this reason he has decided to apply for a loan. With it, he intends to buy merchandise to sell in the villages during the end of year season, in the hope that his financial situation will improve, and with it his quality of life.
