Darwin Alexis
Darwin is 25 years old. He lives with his life's companion and his son. He is a fighter and a hard worker with values and principles.

Darwin buys and sells cattle and butchers animals to later sell the meat. He learned this business as a child because his parents have done these activities for many years and he realized that it is a prosperous and productive business.

He buys the products he needs in the nearby cantons and also travels many kilometers in bus. The cattle are brought to his house. When he butchers the cattle, he has to transport the meat on his back for a kilometer and a half since transportation in his area is very scarce. He buys and sells animals whether they be pigs or cows, re-selling them once a week and butchering twice a week. He sells the meat at a sales spot.

Darwin is asking for the loan to buy a larger quantity of animals to be able to expand his business even more and have better income. This way, he will have a better profit margin and be able to buy more animals to sell.

He wants to buy his own house with this income, since he, his wife and his baby live in his parents' house. He also wants to buy a vehicle to transport his merchandise from his house to where he sells it and thus obtain better income to offer his family what they need.

Darwin se dedica a la compra, venta de ganado y al destazo de estos para posteriormente vender la carne. Este negocio lo aprendió desde que era niño ya que sus padres realizan estas actividades desde hace muchos años y él se ha dado cuenta que es un negocio prospero y productivo.

Los productos que necesita los compra en los cantones más cercanos al lugar donde vive, también viaja en autobús por muchos kilómetros, el ganado se lo llegan a dejar a su casa, cuando destaza el ganado tiene que trasladar la carne en su espalda por un kilómetro y medio ya que el transporte en su zona es muy escaso. El compra y vende animales ya sean cerdos o vacas para revender una vez a la semana y destaza dos veces a la semana y la carne la vende en un puesto de venta.

Darwin solicita el préstamo para comprar más cantidad de animales, para poder ampliar aún más el negocio y tener mejores ingresos. Así él contara con un mejor margen de ganancia y podrá comprar más animales para la venta.
