Arturo's story

Arturo is 48 years old. He lives in Guasmo de Guayaquil, a place where the majority of the inhabitants are involved in business. He owns a woodworking shop and a car that he uses to make deliveries.

Out of necessity, 7 years ago he began using his car in the delivery business. This enabled him to support his three children. He began his workshop in the front part of his house. Little by little he gained a good reputation with his neighbors. Currently he works from 6:30am to 7:30am making deliveries and then from 1:30pm to 6pm he works in his shop. He makes doors and windows etc.

With the loan he would like to buy cement, blocks and paint in order for his business and home to be better positioned. En the future he would like to finish building his home and own a delivery business.
