A loan helped to stock up on drums of water.


Ander Josue's story

Ander is 20 years old. He is single and lives with his parents in Manta, a beautiful place where the people are humble and hardworking and make a living in the seafood business.

Ander is a young man who fights every day to earn his own economic resources. This is why, three years ago, he decided to start a small business where he sells drums of water on the street. Despite the pandemic, his business hasn't been affected with sales since his closest neighbors always come to buy the drums of water since it is an important product in their homes. Thanks to this loan, Ander will be able to continue with his business.

This loan will be invested in stocking up on drums of water. His dream is for his business to progress.
