Hector Anibal's story

Hector E. is 56 years old and lives around an urban area with two basic services, water and electricity but without sewage. His home is located in Paraiso de Guayaquil. He has two children, one is 20 years and goes to college and the other is 10 years old and goes to a private school.

He initiated his business 3 years ago, motivated to create more income for his family. In the morning he purchases things for the store such as ice cream, ice, oranges, etc; meanwhile Hector's kids are in charge of the store from 8AM to 11PM. One of the major complications he has is dealing with competition in his area along with crime.

With this loan, he would like to purchase a display case, rice, oils, and beverages to increase his business. In the future he would like to fix his home and build an apartment to rent out and have another form of income for his family and to also increase the business.
