Edwin Dagoberto
Edwin (39) has a house made of concrete that is located in the outskirts of Guayaquil. Many years ago, Edwin worked in a village far from home - he did not keep his mother company, or help her with her food selling business. He has decided to help, buying more food to prepare.

Today, Edwin works delivering the food his mother prepares. They sell potatoes, noodles, plantains, fruit juice, and soft drinks in whatever combination the customer wants. The biggest difficulty for Edwin is the threat of being robbed when traveling by bus. He is not married and he does not have children.

With this loan, Edwin wants to buy rice, greens, and meats to prepare more dishes. In the future, he would like to have his own permanent spot with all the necessities for food preparation; he'd also like to make improvements to his mother's house.
