Yeison is 24 years old and lives in an urban area of Guayaquil called “Orquídeas” (“Orchids,” so named because many orchids used to grow there). He has a two-year-old son. After marrying, Yeison had to provide for his family and invested his savings in sacks of rice to sell to his friends.
With hard work and dedication, he has made selling rice the primary source of income for his family. He currently works from 4:00pm to 6:00pm Mondays to Sunday, selling each sack of rice for $32.00. This work enables him to spend time with his family, so he is requesting a loan to buy more rice so he can increase his income.
In the future, he would like to have a wholesale shop.

Yeison después de casarse necesitaba mantener a su familia y tuvo que invertir sus ahorros en quintales de arroz y vendérselos a sus amigos.
Con esfuerzo y dedicación hizo de esta venta de arroz su principal ingreso para su familia. En la actualidad trabaja desde las 16h00pm hasta las 18h00pm de lunes a domingo. Cada quintal de arroz lo vende a $ 32.00. Por este trabajo tiene tiempo para pasar con su familia. Por eso quiere con el préstamo comprar quintales de arroz para tener mas ingresos.
En el futuro quiere tener un local para vender al por mayor.
