Eris Rodolfo's story

Eris runs both a book store and a general store. He lives with his in-laws and his wife and 2 children, ages 7 and 15. They are economically dependent on him. His business is located in the city. He works with one employee every day of the week. The business has a paper supplies and book section on one side, and a general store, with basic grains and foodstuff, on the other. The business is 3 years old.

Eris wants to purchase notebooks and books for the opening of the school term, buying mainly teaching materials which will serve the students for another year. Also, he will purchase a quantity of products of primary necessity, including cooking oil and basic grains, so that his inventory has more variety, and he can obtain better earnings and, thus, increase his economic stability.

Eris' dream is to enroll his son in an institute where he can study for his bachelors diploma, allowing him to qualify for a profession, and also, Eris wants to construct a new room on their residence and help the family to live better.
