Lorgio Oswaldo's story

Lorgio Oswaldo is 65 years old and divorced. He has three children who are grown and independent. He lives in a home he owns in Portoviejo, a city hit by an earthquake on April 1, 2016, and now by the Covid-19 pandemic. It is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes and tropical fruits for national consumption.

Lorgio is a master welder. He has a welding shop at his house where individuals come to have him make a variety of things, such as home protections items, doors, metal structures, etc. He also has some small apartments he rents, and collects rental payments monthly.

At the beginning of the quarantine he had no work, because he was afraid of getting sick, and the different restrictions prohibited him from going out to sell. Now he is following the biosecurity protocols.

This loan is to buy paints, solder, steel-cutting blades, steel, etc. Lorgio's dream is to enjoy very good health, and that his business return to how it was before, because his jobs have decreased, and he doesn't have good income.
