A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase kitchenware to sell.


Geroncio Ecuador's story

Geroncio is 51 years old and sells kitchenware for a living. He lives in El Guasmo in Guayaquil (a section of the city where the majority of the residents are informal merchants).

Years ago he was a taxi driver, but one afternoon he was kidnapped along with his taxi so he quit this job because it wasn't safe. He started to sell kitchenware to support his family and now he works with two other people that help him with sales. He works from 8:30 in the morning until 1:00 in the afternoon. He sells pots,pans, dishes, etc.

With this loan he wants to buy pots and dishes for his business. In the future he would like to have a store to better sell his merchandise.
