Dennis Arnaldo
Dennis is 21 years old and lives in the outskirts of Guayaquil. He runs a stand selling food and drinks out of his home, thanks to his parents who passed the business down to him.

When Dennis was young, his parents had a business selling food and he always observed how they worked and cooked. When he grew up, his parents decided to give him their business. Now he sells lunches, snacks, and drinks every day. He gets up early in the morning to prepare the food, but to increase his income, he would like to refurbish his workspace. He would use this loan to improve his business by buying a kitchenette, a gas cylinder, tables, and chairs.

In the future, Dennis hopes to have his own restaurant and his own house.
