Jacinto is 32 years old. He has a bakery in the front part of his home. He lives with his wife and three children in an urban area called Guasmo which is characterized by the fact that most of its inhabitants are traders and salespeople.
13 years ago he learned to bake bread in a very well-known Guayaquil bakery called “California” but he decided to start working for himself. He bought an oven so that he could have his own bakery in his home. He currently works from 5.00am baking bread until 6.00pm when his work day ends and he can spend time with his family.
He would like to use his loan to buy yeast, flour and dairy products for his bakery. In the future, he would like to have branches of his bakery in main streets to provide him with more sales opportunities.
