A loan of $1,325 helped to buy milk and yoghurt.


Franklin David's story

Franklin, 31, was born in Jipijapa where cattle raising predominates. Several years ago he left the city of his birth and currently lives in Guayaquil with his wife and three children who are 4, 7 and 9 years old and attend public school. Aiming at getting ahead he started selling milk door to door to improve his economy. His daughter helps him deliver the milk from Monday to Sunday starting at 7am. His wife works doing domestic chores so she only helps him on the weekend. His greatest concern is the widespread delinquency in the neighborhoods. He will use the loan to buy yoghurt to increase sales and be able to give his children a better education.
