Luis Alexander's story
The "Las Divinas" credit group meets once every 15 days in the Tarqui neighborhood of the city of Manta. The city is known for its gorgeous beaches that are visited year-round by many, and for its unequaled beauty with many tourist attractions. This place is the home of Luis, who is 24 years old and married with a 2-year-old child. His wife is a stay-at-home mom. Luis is a man who likes to work hard to provide the best for his family. He is a taxi driver, and he makes his earnings carrying freight from one side of town to the other. With help from his wife, Luis also conducts sales from his home, where he has a small store of barrels of water. When he is able, he attends to customers who make purchases from his home or by delivery to their houses. Otherwise, his wife is in charge of the sales. They have been running this business for 3 years, and it has produced enough earnings to keep them moving forward. He will use this loan to buy more drums of water. He has been with this credit group since its initiation, and he likes it because these loans started his business. His dream is to give the best to his family and to have his own taxi.
