Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is 45 years old and married. He does not have children. His wife is a craftswoman who makes clothes. They live in their own house. They live in Picoazá, which is known for its religious festivals and for its production of greens, vegetables, and tropical fruits. It is the source of progress and the main informal commercial center in Manabí.

Juan Carlos is a master bricklayer. He works Mondays through Saturdays in construction. When he has free time on the weekends he sells cheese by the pound at peoples' homes. His wife helps him with the weighing, and she sometimes helps deliver orders. However, he is the one that always does that.

At first the health crisis was very bad for him because he was not able to sell. However, he is now, little by little, reactivating the business in order to be able to continue generating earnings in this way.

He will use this loan to buy more cheese in order to continue growing his business. His dream is to have a vehicle to make deliveries to more places and for his family to be in good health.
