A loan of $1,000 helped cellular cards.


Oscar Oswaldo's story

Oscar, 24, lives in a suburban area of Guayaquil. He started selling "Porta" mobile phone recharges (Equador Telephone Company). Little by little, with effort and dedication, his mobile recharge business grew. To provide greater service, he purchased a phone booth in order to provide service to everybody.
Currently he generates a good profit, working from 7:30am to 8:30pm every day. He occasionally also sells phone accessories. In order for his business to adapt, he needs to increase his income. Therefore, with this loan, he wants to buy recharge cards for cellular phones. In the future he hopes to have one of the biggest call centers in his area.
