Guido Lizardo's story
A young, charismatic young man, Guido is entrepreneurial, affable, and humble. He lives in the community of La Esperanza Alta, in the parish of El Chical, Ecuador, and he lives together with his family which includes his partner and their three children. The kids are young and they are his motivation for getting up early each day to make a living and bring bread home to the family table so that they will not lack. He works as a day-laborer in the morning in the fields nearby and in the afternoon he works on his own crops, weeding and caring for them. He dream is to have his own land to cultivate and for that reason he works hard every day. Currently he has cultivated some naranjilla plants (traditional Ecuadoran fruit) which he hopes will produce an excellent product. However, he lacks the money and this loan would be used to buy fertilizer and agricultural products as well as tools for his fields. For that reason he is asking for a loan. Guido aspires to reach his dream soon.
