Vicente Gonzalo
Not having a job forced Vicente to look for alternatives to survive. He looked for opportunities but couldn't find any so he decided to have a business selling "morocho," a traditional dessert of Guayaquil. He saw a good market, so everything's going well now. He does his job with his wife, who prepares the morocho for him and he goes out to sell it in the central area of Manta at 4 p.m.

Vicente has two children. One of them studies in a public school and the other one, a girl, is special, so his wife has to take her to the doctor every day.

With the loan he's going to buy provisions for morocho and fix his cart because it's in bad shape. He's also going to improve the state of his house. Some of his goals are to improve his family's finances and give them a good future so his children can finish their studies.
