Esteban Rosalino
Esteban, 60, lives in a canton called Playas, one of the tourist areas of Ecuador with diverse populations of seafood. He is married and his wife helps him raise chickens for sale.

He started out working as a security guard at an estate located at the entryway to Playas. By his effort and with his savings he built a coop for raising chickens and eggs at home with the help of his wife. With the help of this business and the loans that he took out, he is finishing up building his house. He labors daily from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., going out to feed his chickens in order to later sell them to the stores and restaurants in the region. At first he had difficulties caring for the chicks as when the weather was hot they would die or fail to grow. Then however he bought them vitamins and the problem was solved.

With the help of the loan he wants to buy vitamins, vaccines and chicken feed, and more chickens to raise for sale. The goal is to finish building his house which is nearly complete, and improve his business, becoming better known in the area, as well as enjoy good health and energy to keep working.
