A loan of $1,700 helped to buy meat and pay rental on a locale.

Alejandro Nelson's story

Alejandro, 52, lives in Milagro, Ecuador. He decided to work as a caretaker at a school but seeing that the money was insufficient to support his family he decided to sell bollos [green plantain, peanuts and fish wrapped in a banana leaf]; he does well. He works every day as a caretaker and on weekends as a bollo merchant. In future, he'd like to have his family all together and to improve his business. He will use the loan to buy meat and to rent a locale for his snack shop.
