Rogelio Alberto's story

Rogelio, who is 45 years old, lives in an urban area in the Orquídeas section of Guayaquil. (Las Orquídeas means "The Orchids", so called because it originally had many orchid flowers). His wife sells costume jewelry and they have two adult children. He is an employee working for Lan Ecuador airline.

He works for the airline as a storekeeper in the warehouses, and he has no difficulties with his work. With the help of the loan, he wants to invest in building materials. In the future he wants to finish alterations to his home, building a second story on his home so that he can provide the best for his family.
