A loan of $1,000 helped computers and to set up his stand.


Mario Arturo's story

Mario is 41 and lives in the Guasmo de Guayaquil (a built-up area where most of the residents are lower class). He began working with a computer cafe after the business where he worked was liquidated.

With effort and dedication he was able to buy computers and a booth in a stand. From that time on he has had his Cyber business which is the main economic support for his family. He works from 7 am to 7 pm every day. With the loan he would like to fix up the stand and to buy a computer for it.

In the future he wants his own house and to have a greater number of customers.
