Oscar Manuel's story

Oscar is 55, single, and lives in the city of Chincha with his mother, whom he loves and appreciates all her support. He is kind and enthusiastic worker who devotes all his efforts to getting ahead. Unfortunately, due to the need to work from an early age, Oscar could not study for a veterinary career like he wanted. In his spare time, he enjoys watching news on television and sometimes cooking a delicious carapulcra sopa seca to share with his family.

Of his own initiative, with much effort and dedication, Oscar works in his small business selling sweets. He makes sales made ​​in different districts of the city and works for about 8 hours a day. He feels comfortable doing his work and believes that he does well by providing friendly service to his customers.

Oscar is very grateful to the lenders, and thanks to the help he has received, he can buy panettone and champagne. As the holiday season approaches, he wants to sell these products additionally. He will continue to work and strive to gradually improve their housing and achieve his goal of providing a good quality of life for his mother.
