Mr. Arturo is the only man who is a member the "Mujeres del Futuro" ("Women of the Future") Communal Bank, which meets in the Las Orquídea neighborhood, in the canton of Portoviejo. Arturo sells paper and plastic products like: tubs, plates, bags, and everything related to products of those materials. He has been doing this for a year now. He started in the Puerto de Manta neighborhood since he lives there, and just recently he has expanded his service to the canton of Portoviejo. It's going very well and his goal is to extend his service to other cantons.

Arturo is married and has two adolescent children who help him with the business. They are responsible for delivering products to stores, restaurants, and bakeries. He got started in this work because it was his father-in-law's business, and when he died, he left the business to his daughter. Arturo and his wife have continued the business. He got together some money, stocked up, and has had success with their sales. With this new loan, Mr. Arturo will be able to invest in the purchase of more products for his business. At the same time, he'd like to try something new, which will be the sale of curtains, sheets, and tablecloths. He has discussed this with his wife and she agrees with him, because this way, they will be able to continue supporting their family. He will travel to Quito and Guayaquil to purchase the merchandise.

He delivers orders with his personal vehicle. He is very satisfied by the support he receives from the Foundation.
