Edgar Osmin
Edgar is a hard-working and responsible person who has excellent references from those who know him because he is always looking to improve his life.

For the last five years, Edgar has been selling minutas (shaved ices), which are very popular because they are traditional sweets in his country. They are made of ice covered with different flavored syrups and topped with a little tamarind honey.

Edgar is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL so that he can have enough money to buy greater quantities of flavored syrups, as well as bigger ice mold trays, so that he can serve more customers who, every day, buy the minutas that Edgar sells on the streets.
