Jorge Antonio
Jorge is from Portoviejo. He works transporting merchandise to vegetable merchants on a three-wheel cart. He used to travel throughout the city selling shaved ice treats but he realized that this wasn’t improving his income so he decided to change it.

Jorge is 56 years old and married. He lives in Portoviejo with his wife and four children. He tells us that three of the children are his and the fourth is actually his daughter’s who died and he adopted him. They are 14, 12, 8 and 6 years of age and attend public school.

His work schedule begins at 6am and ends at noon and then again from 3pm until 6pm every day. He does not have many difficulties in his work but he does worry a little about his health although he says he’s harder than a rock.

He wants the loan mainly to do some improvements to his brick house. His five-year goal is to buy a motorcycle-powered card to give his legs a rest and improve his quality of life that way.
