Adán William
Adán Rodríguez, 47 years old, lives in the Paraíso sector of Guayaquil. His house is made of cement, and the only utilities it has are lights and water. His wife helps him in the store. They have three children, ages 11 and 17 years, and an 18-year-old daughter who is disabled.

While Adán was working, he invested his salary in a small freezer and bought some perishable items at a store. Little by little he added legumes and meats to his merchandise. Adán now has a well-stocked store. One of his best-selling products is rice. He works from 7:00 am on, and for extra income he works as a solderer. The insecurity felt in his sector of the city makes it difficult to do excellent work.

With this loan he wants to buy rice, oil, and legumes for his shop. In the future he would like to fix up the patio of his house and be able to give his children a better life.
