A loan helped table and chairs.


Carlos Jacinto's story

Carlos is 55 years old and has a fast food stand. He lives in an urban region called Guasmo, which is known for the majority of its inhabitants who are merchants.


He began his food business in order to have a new business, and to be able to pay the family expenses. Currently he sells several plates and amongst them, one is called "encebollado" (a typical plate in Ecuador that contains fish, yucca, and legumes). He works from 7am until 2pm with the help of his wife.


With this loan he wants to buy tables and chairs for his business. In the future he wants to have a bigger place in order to have more customers.
