Jose Vicente's story

José Vicente and his family live in Manta, a charming city for its beaches and gastronomy that has been very affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

He's a hardworking man who's devoted to his family. For more than 20 years he has worked selling natural products like OMG-3, vitamins and minerals, and tea, among others. His shop is in his house, which is a big advantage because he doesn't have to pay rent.

Even so, he's very worried that his sales are not what they were before because of the pandemic. That's why he decided to start a new business: selling cakes by the piece. He delivers on request and by household.

He's going to use the loan to buy natural products and ingredients for making cakes.

His dreams are to have more customers and for his sales to increase.
