Wilson Hipolito
Wilson is 38 years old and sells refreshments and fruits, such as coconuts and watermelons. He lives in Orquídeas de Guayaquil, an urban area with a decaying ecosystem.

He started this type of business because there were no other fruit stands where he lives. At first he sold coconuts, but with a little bit of effort, he began selling watermelons and other fruits. Now he wakes up at 4am and works until 3pm every day. He sells coconuts for $0.60/each and watermelons for $1.50/each. Wilson also sells natural beverages made from watermelons and coconuts.

In order to continue attracting more customers, Wilson will use his loan to buy more coconuts and watermelons. In the future, he hopes to set up fruit stands in every sector of Orquídeas.
