Eduardo Antonio
Eduardo was born in Quininde, province of Esmeraldas. He remembers how beautiful his hometown was because of the variety of fruits that are grown. He has lived in Quevedo for more than 15 years because his parents migrated in search of a better future for their children. Now he is 26 years old and is still in Quevedo. He has his own family and fights every day for them. He is married to Elsa, a housewife who works taking care of their children, ages 2 years and 4 months.

Eduardo has worked buying and selling junk since he lost his job. When his contract ended he received a settlement, with which he bought a three-wheeled motorcycle and began his job. He decided on this job because an uncle told him it was profitable and taught him the job. He works from 7 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon, covering various areas. He has a microphone to announce the purchase of articles in bad condition. Then he goes to the collection area and sells it.

This is a way to earn his daily living and at the same time help the environment, because of the multiple government campaigns to turn Ecuador into an ecological country.

The loan Eduardo is requesting is to have financing to be able to buy the junk. He is hoping to get together money to buy a car, with which he would expand his routes.

Eduardo se dedica a la compra y venta de chatarra esto lo realiza luego de quedarse desempleado, cuando finalizo su contrato recibió una liquidación con la que compro una tricimoto y empezó su trabajo. Se decidió por esta actividad por un tío quien le indico que es rentable, y le enseño la forma del trabajo. Empieza desde las 7 de la mañana hasta las 2 de la tarde recorriendo varios sectores, tiene un micrófono con el que vocifera la compra de artículos en mal estado, luego va al lugar de acopio y lo vende. Es una forma de ganarse su sustento diario a la vez que ayuda al medioambiente, esto por las múltiples compañas del gobierno para convertir al Ecuador en un país ecológico. El crédito que solicita Eduardo es para tener capacidad de financiamiento y poder comprar la chatarra, esperando reunir dinero para la compra de un carro con lo cual ampliaría sus recorridos.
