Victor Jose's story

Mr. Victor is 51 years old. He lives in a house made out of cane, in an area with few basic services. It is located in the Paradise Zone of Guayaquil. His wife is a seamstress and she sells rice and vegetables. They have three children. Two of the children live with him. One is three years old and the other is one year old. The twelve-year-old girl lives with his ex-wife. Victor has had a small booth (on the Valle de la Flor Street in Guayaquil) for the past three years where he has sold vegetables. Victor works from 6:00am until 12pm and from 2pm until 8pm selling vegetables and fruit. One of his biggest problems is transportation. He pays $5.00 each day for transportation. With this loan he would like to buy boxes of fruit so that he can grow his business. In the future he would like to have an established store at his house. He would also like to improve his home.
