Miguel Angel's story

Miguel is a calm, optimistic person with high values. He has three children and lives in San Gabriel in the province of Carchi in northern Ecuador.

Miguel makes wood doors for a living and started the business 15 years ago. He works on an order basis and little by little has been able to grow his business, which is his source of income to cover his family's needs. This is his sixth loan through Fodemi, as he is very enterprising and wants his business to continue growing so he can increase his income.

His dream is to be able to build his own house.
