Geovan Antonio
Geovan is 36 years old and lives in Guasmo de Guayaquil, an urban place where much of the population has few economic resources. He has two children, and he owns a chicken roasting shop.

Geovan has worked for 10 years in a chicken roasting shop, but since he needed to increase his income for his family, he decided to use his savings to invest in purchasing chickens and his own roasting shop so that he could sell chicken with vegetable stew and fried bananas. For now, he works from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day. He sells each roast chicken for $8.00.

With this loan, he would like to buy tables, chairs and chickens for his business selling roast chickens. In the future, he would like to buy a car so that he can deliver the chickens to homes.
