A loan of $1,375 helped to buy fish and bananas.


Juan Manuel's story

Juan is 48 years old, and he lives in Quevedo, Ecuador. He started selling fish from a bicycle. Now, as it has gone well for him, he makes his sales from his motorcycle or his car. He works alone every day. He works hard, and he has a great desire to get ahead. In the future he wishes to have his own home and to give his children a good life. He will use the loan to buy fish and bananas, etc.
