Manuel Roberto's story

Manuel is 34 years old and lives in Fortín Guayaquil. He decided to get into this business of rickshaw delivery because when he was laid off it seemed like work on a rickshaw was a good option. He is enjoying it.

He is married and has three children. His wife is a cook. He works every day alone to give his family what they need. The difficulty he has is with local crime.

In the future, he longs to have his own home and that his children complete their studies. With the loan he will buy parts for his vehicle.
