A loan of $975 helped household utentsils like pots and plates.

Wilson Mauricio's story

Wilson A., 38, lives in the outskirts of Guayaquil. His wife devotes herself to the household chores. They have three children. The children are 14, 12, and 9; and all of them go to school.

With help from a friend who lent him money to be able to start, Wilson began selling pitchers for juice. Now he sells household utensils by traveling all of the sectors of Guayaquil selling pots, plates, pitchers, and glasses, etc. He works from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. He waits on an average of six to ten customers a day. The rains are an inconvenience that he has.

He wants to use the loan to buy more household utensils like plates, pots, and spoons, etc. In the future he wants to have good capital in order to work and be able to have a fixed location to sell his merchandise.
