Carlos Alejandro
Carlos is 58 years old. He lives in a suburb of Guayaquil and he sells seafood such as fish, shrimp, and oysters. He has two children and one who passed away.

He started to sell seafood when he was married in order to have more income for his family. Little by little, he bought fish, shrimp, etc. He works from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. every day. He sells every pound of fish for $2.00, and a pound of shrimp costs $2.50.

In order to increase the amount of seafood he has in his business he wants to buy fish, oysters and shrimp with the loan. He tells us he does not want to be anxious for what tomorrow will bring, as the Bible says.
