Luis Carlos's story

Carlos, at his 23 years of age, is the owner of a business that sells literature and text books. It's a business he has run for the last four years, but one he has known since he was small. The business is a family tradition and legacy. Carlos is an enterprising, dedicated man with vision and a great desire to get ahead. He says, “I like working in my business because I'm in charge of my own time and I can learn a lot of new things. In addition, it gives me the opportunity to study at the university, to get ahead.” With these words, Carlos expresses his motivation for requesting the help of a second loan. His goal is to invest the loan in the purchase of a batch of books (textbooks and literature) and to take advantage of the discount that would give him. He can then improve his sales income, which would allow him to meet his goal of having a professional career and expanding his business. He would then have the resources to gain financial stability, improve his quality of life and support his family.
