Elvis Daniel's story

Elvis continues living in El Suburbio in Guayaquil. At the age of 52 he’s single but he maintains a relationship with his three children who are independent.

His profession for the last 13 years has been master builder. He started at the age of 16 working as an assistant where he learned everything related to construction. From the age of 19 on he started working for himself making his work known. He currently has his own work projects and he works with an assistant. His schedule is Monday through Saturday since Sunday is to rest because his work depends on physical strength. The only inconvenience with his work is that there is little of it in winter.

The loan Elvis is requesting is to finish building a house. He will buy sand, cement, stone and pay the fees related to the house’s title. As a construction worker, his dream is to own a house with beautiful finishing touches.
