Francisco Alberto's story

Francisco is 41 years old. He is married and has two adult children and three minor children, ages 16, 13, and 9, who attend secondary and primary school. His wife is a businesswoman. They live in the Jaramijo canton, a beautiful place where the inhabitants are humble and hard-working people and which has been very affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Francisco is a very hard-working and enterprising man who makes an effort every day to get ahead along with his family. To do this, for five years he has been selling fishing materials such as hooks, cables, plastics, and fishing line, among other items that meet the needs of his customers. Separately, he also has two boats, with six men who are in charge of doing the fishing to then sell to the dealers. For the first days of the pandemic, his boats didn't go out to fish because of fear of infection, but as things are improving, they are now going out.

This loan is to buy fishing materials.

His dreams are to have a shop so that his business can continue growing.
