Iván is 27 years old. He considers himself to be a happy, hard-working and responsible person. He likes to take on projects to meet his goals. Iván lives with his wife and their two children in the city of Ibarra.
Iván makes his living selling wholesale fruit, vegetables and legumes. He started the business three months ago. It was a dream of his, and he is making it happen. But to run his business, he is constantly needing to purchase more products, which is why he is requesting a loan from Fodemi. He will use it to invest in the purchase of bulk carrots, peas, beans, red onion and crates of tomatoes to re-sell to his customers. This loan will allow Iván to continue increasing his sales and his income, which will help to improve his family's quality of life.
Iván hopes that the business he started is successful and that, in the future, he is able to build his own home.
