Jhony Mauricio
Jhony is a 30-year-old man. He grew up in a home with limited resources where the value of honest and hard work was always instilled in him. He was able to study until the end of his secondary education, and he is separated from his wife with whom he had three children. Since the separation, the children no longer live with him, but Jhony has not neglected them for a single day. Two of them are 8 years old and the third is barely 3 years old.

This hardworking man now lives by himself in the canton Santo Domingo of the province Santo Domingo in Tsachilas. Santo Domingo connects the mountainous region with the coastal region of Ecuador, and is a city that has become a commercial center with several growing sectors. It contains various enterprising families that started small businesses some years ago and now are microbusiness owners that support a generation of employment. Studies show that most of the businesses began empirically and have grown with the passage of tourists, businesspeople and travelers that move from one region to another and in addition it is the third most populated city in the country.

Jhony since leaving school worked as a laborer in the agricultural sector raising pigs. From these experiences he learned the activity which he has devoted himself to for 10 years on his land. Every morning he bathes and feeds the pigs and in the afternoons he visits his children or goes to the animal market to sell his pigs and in addition to pick up feed for his animals.

In spite of the separation from his wife which affected him and frustrated him greatly, Jhony continued working with the dream of one day seeing his three children becoming professionals of excellence, as he failed to become one.

This is his first loan from Fundacion Alternativa and he is very happy with the trust, consulting and efficient management that they offer him, principally because they could depend on Kiva loans. With this loan, he will expand the nursery to improve the growth of the pigs and also to be able to bring more pigs and thereby grow his sales. Jhony is grateful to those who support the financing of his job growth that will also help him to begin construction of his own house.

Jhony es un hombre de 30 años, creció en un hogar de escasos recursos donde siempre le inculcaron el valor del trabajo honesto y esforzado. Pudo estudiar hasta terminar la escuela secundaria y está separado de su esposa con quien tuvo 3 hijos que a raíz de la separación dejaron de vivir con él, pero Jhony no los ha descuidado ni un solo día, dos de ellos tienen 8 años y el tercero tiene casi 3 años. Este hombre trabajador ahora vive solo en el Cantón Santo Domingo de la provincia de Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas. Santo Domingo se encuentra conectando la Región Sierra con la Región Costa del Ecuador, es una ciudad que se ha convertido en un eje comercial con varios sectores en crecimiento y como prueba se tiene a varias familias emprendedoras que hace algunos años comenzaron con pequeños negocios y ahora son microempresarios que aportan a la generación de empleo. Los estudios revelan que todos los negocios en su mayoría, empezaron empíricamente y han tenido acogida por el paso de turistas, empresarios y viajeros que se trasladan de una región a otra y además que es la tercera ciudad más habitada en el país.
Jhony desde que salió del colegio trabajó como empleado en el sector de la agricultura y en la crianza de cerdos, de estas experiencias aprendió la actividad a la cual se dedica desde hace 10 años en su terreno. Todas las mañanas se dedica a la limpieza de las chancheras y la alimentación de los cerdos y las tardes visita a sus hijos o va a la feria de animales a ofertar sus chanchos y además a recolectar el alimento para sus animales. A pesar de que la separación de su cónyuge le afectó y frustró mucho, Jhony siguió trabajo con el sueño de un día ver a sus 3 hijos convertidos en profesionales de excelencia como el no pudo llegar a ser. Es su primer crédito en Fundación Alternativa y está muy satisfecho con la confianza, asesoría y eficiente gestión que le brindaron, principalmente porque han contado con el producto Kiva. Con este crédito, realizará la ampliación de los criaderos para una mejor crianza de los cerdos y también para poder traer más cerdo y así incrementar sus ventas. Jhony agradece a quienes aportan la financiación de este crecimiento laboral que además aportará para que pueda empezar la construcción de su casa propia.
