A loan of $1,050 helped to buy cement and blocks.

Fernando Andres's story

Fernando is 29 years old. He works as a driver and lives in a peri-urban area called Perimetral. He started out at the age of 14, learning to drive a car that he was lent. When he grew up he decided that this was going to be his profession and he borrowed a friend's car so that he could drive the streets and make money.

Fernando currently works from 11.00am to 12.00am every day in the streets of Guayaquil. He has a lot of aspirations to keep working and, for this reason, he works every day. In the future, he has aspirations to improve himself but, for now, he would like to fix up his house, buying blocks and cement. He is thinking, in the not-too-distant future, of buying a bus and becoming a member of a drivers' cooperative.
