Abilio J. is 42 years old and lives in a concrete house with basic services (water and lights), located in Paraíso de Guayaquil. He is single and has no children.

Abilio began working in a bakery but later, decided to become independent and open a grocery store. That was 8 years ago. Now he works every day from 6:30 AM until 10:00 PM, selling colas, milk, rice, etc. One of his biggest problems is delinquency in his neighborhood.

With this loan he will buy rice, colas, and cooking oil, in order to expand his business. In the future, he wants to enhance the business even more, and to be able to improve his house.
