Eduardo Rafael's story

Eduardo is a successful micro-businessman. He is a married man with three children, who are two, four, and seven years of age. He is 33 years old and his business is an internet café and bookstore, which he has had for nine years. He and his wife look after the business. With the previous loan they acquired new products for the bookstore, three new computers for the internet café, and a photocopier. They bought all of this with the earnings generated from the business. He will invest this loan in purchasing items for the bookstore, such as full-sized notebooks, pocket-sized notebooks, pens, graphite pencils, colored pencils, glue, industrial adhesive, craft foam, maps, etc.
