Fabricio Geovany's story

Fabricio is a 44 year old man living in the province of Esmeraldas in Ecuador, in a warm area where tourism is one of the main activities and where an incredible vegetation is found along the Esmeraldas River. The small farmers raise an abundant number of fruits that come and go everywhere giving life to the town where Fabricio lives.

He opened his grocery store eight years ago in order to support his household expenses. Fabricio is divorced and his divorce not only has injured him but also the three children, two married with the other one still studying. Despite the difficult situation he has succeeded in getting ahead and continues with the business where he works every day with one of his daughters.

The lack of capital has been one of the biggest problems over the years, and one of his dreams is that all of his children finish their studies, and that they surpass themselves obtaining a better quality of life and in this way granting their family the wellbeing they deserve.

Fabricio has worked hard all his life but in the last few years and today more than ever he wants to expand his business in order to fulfill his dream, thinking of his family. This investment for his store would be to generate more profit through buying and selling merchandise. We hope that Fabricio is able to achieve his goals through this opportunity.
