Jonas
Jonas is 64 years old. He has a small grocery store in the front of his home. He lives with his wife and two children in Playas canton, one of the tourist destinations of Ecuador which is noted for its large variety of seafood.

Eight years ago there was no store or place to buy groceries in the area where Jonas lives. For that reason, he decided to set up the first store in the area so that he could make income and support his family. He began selling sweets from the window of his house and little by little he stocked his store. He currently has a grocery store and works there from 7.00am to 6.00pm selling rice, canned goods, drinks, grains, etc. To continue with his business and better stock his store, he would like to use his loan to buy rice, sugar, sweets and canned goods.

His aspirations for the future are for his store to be better stocked and bigger. He would also like to sell chickens to make an additional income.
