A loan of $1,200 helped beef, chicken.

Felipe Mauricio's story

34 year-old Felipe lives in Guasmo, Guayaquil (an urban zone, where the majority of the inhabitants are informal merchants). He has got a butcher's shop and sells all types of meat. Since he was little, his family has worked in the butcher's shop and taught him how to run it. When he grew up and had three children, he had to invest money in order to sustain his family. Nowadays, he has got a meat stall where he works from 8am until 6pm. He sells pork, beef, chicken, etc. In order to increase his earnings, he wants to invest his loan in the purchase of beef, chicken, and pork. In the future, he wants to become a wholesale vendor of meat.
