A loan of $500 helped cement and bricks.


Eduardo Aurelio's story

Eduardo is 48 years old and works in the streets of Guayaquil to sell small cakes made of flour, meat, and chicken. He lives in a suburban area called Duran, which is known for its poor ecological state. He began to make small cakes when a friend of his asked him to work together making the cakes. Since that time until now he walks the streets of Guayaquil as a street vendor of small cakes, while his friend cooks the cakes of meat and chicken. To gain more income, he wants to purchase cement and bricks with the loan to better construct his house and in that way have space to establish a shop to sell cakes. In the future he wants to finish constructing his house.
