Manuel Vicente's story

Manuel is 37 years old. He is a Venezuelan entrepreneur who, due to the socioeconomic crisis in his country, decided to migrate to Ecuador.

Manuel has lived in the city of Ibarra for 4 years together with his wife and his two young children. Upon arriving in Ecuador, he worked as selling confectionery on the street. However, due to his desire to improve his economic situation, he started to sell fast food. Currently, he sells hamburgers from his food stall.

Manuel requires a loan to improve the cart where he prepares food and to acquire new equipment. This loan will help him to consolidate his business and improve the quality of life of his family.

Manuel requires your support. He is happy and grateful to receive your help.
