Luis Aquiles's story

Luis, 61, lives in Quevedo, Ecuador. He had a store but closed it because he separated from his wife. Because of this he decided to sell candy and shine shoes. It is going well for him. This is the way of getting ahead. He has two grown children. The difficulty he has is illness. In the future he wants his business to do well and, because he lost a leg, he needs to buy a prosthesis to replace his leg.

With the loan he will buy a chair, crutches, and candy.
