Oswaldo Arturo's story

Oswaldo, 40, is an informal clothing merchant in the towns. He lives in a neighborhood called “Esmeraldas Chiquita” (Little Emeralds) located around South Guayaquil’s estuary. He started selling clothes in his own neighborhood to support his family but because he wanted to increase his income he started to travel to the towns to offer his clothes there. He sells blouses for $5.00, undershirts for $7.00 and dress sets for $10.00. To continue in his work he wants to buy more merchandise like: blouses, undershirts and dresses. In the future he’d like to improve the construction of his house.
