Orlando is from Jorochito, in Santa Cruz. He is not married but lives with his partner and has one child. He works as a 'dredger', removing sand and stone from the river to then sell to people who sell construction supplies. His work is very demanding as he needs all his strength.

Orlando would like to make inroads into another business. For this reason, he is requesting this loan to buy ducks and set up a duck farm. He is grateful to our institution for having placed our trust in him and given him the support he needs to invest in another business (raising ducks). This will be another source of income for him and will provide him with a better quality of life.
