Nelson Morcelino
Nelson, is in business of informally selling the "encebollados" dish (it's a typical food served at breakfast containing fish and onions). He lives in a house made out of cane in el Paraiso de Guayaquil (a semi-rural area with dirt roads and houses made partly in the mountains). He began to sell this area's typical dish outside of their home and slowly began having regular customers. He has been in business for 5 years and sells about 20 meals per day, and works from 06h00am until he sells all the "encebollados" that he's made.

In order to enlarge his business, Nelson would like to buy cooking pots, fish and invest some money in clothing - this will help him bring in additional income. In the future wants to have a house made out of concrete, and expand his business.
