It is a Fukien Tea tree [Carmona Microphylla, Also called Ehretia Buxifolia]
Here is a care sheet for it: https://www.bonsai4me.com/SpeciesGuide/Carmona.html as well as a few links about general bonsai care.
An introduction: https://www.bonsai4me.com/Basics/Basics_Intro.html

I encourage you to read the sticky about Soil and see how your current potting medium stacks up, Do ask if you have any more questions about bonsai.
