Jose Vicente's story

José is 30 years old and lives in Fortín de Guayaqui (a periurban zone with the remains of a disintegrating ecosystem). He has a fruit and vegetable shop in his house. With hard work and dedication he was able to built his house and converted part of it into a small shop. He works from 5am til 11pm at night. To create better opportunities to grow his business he wants to buy rice, sugar and oil with this loan to stock his shop better. In the future José wants to be a wholesaler of fruit and vegetables, and build a bigger house.
