A loan helped to purchase tools.


Luis Antonio's story

Luis Antonio and his family live in Manta, a charming city where the locals are people of very good heart who daily work to get their families ahead honestly.

Luis is an enterprising man who daily strives to pay the household expenses. It is for this that previously he worked selling jugs of water. But, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to leave his business for a while since it dropped due to biosafety reasons and his income diminished drastically. But, now, to continue generating income, he decided to work as a mason until everything goes back to normal.

He will invest this loan to purchase tools he needs. His dream is that his business will progress once again and to improve his finances.
