Edwin Efrain's story

Edwin is single. He lives with his mother, who is now at an advanced age. He is responsible for covering the household expenses. His line of work is running a store where he offers basic staples. He learned this line of work from some family members. He will invest the loan he is requesting in the purchase of oil, salt, sugar, rice, beans, corn, bread, drinks, soap, disinfectants, bleach, etc. so that he can stock his store with new products. This will allow him to attract new customers and earn a better income. He aspires to have a bigger business, cancel his debt and, most importantly, to give his mother a better quality of life.
