A loan of $800 helped to purchase two computers.


Ever Augusto's story

Ever is 55 years old. He lives in a common-law marriage with his partner and has 6 children. Due to lack of work opportunities, Ever and his family have been through difficult financial situations, but Ever's spirit, strength and desire to get ahead in life motivated him to open his own business. Together with his wife, they refurbished the living room of their house about a year ago and opened a home-based Internet Cafe. This has allowed them to generate income and provide for their large family. Ever and his wife work long hours. They open every day of the week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Ever is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of two work stations (computers) to expand his business and meet the demands of his customers, which he cannot do with his current equipment. This will improve his sales and family income. It will also allow Ever to move towards achieving his goal of having a well organized business, with quality equipment and able to provide excellent service. This in turn will improve his family's well-being and quality of life and will allow Ever to provide an excellent education for his children.
