Rene Paul
René has enjoyed working since he was ten-years-old, and for this reason her has started his own activity selling cakes traveling around the sectors of Portoviejo, his native soil. He started selling a few products, and his inventory has been growing little by little with the increase in the number of customers. He travels around the sectors all day long, Mondays to Fridays. René sells less in winter, as the weather does not help him selling his products, as well as during school holidays, because schools are a great market for him. He charges $ 0.15 for one cake and $ 1.80 for a packet. He is happily married with Maria Isabel, who creates Styrofoam items for children’s parties, and their daughter who foes to kindergarten. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy cakes and water to sell. In the future he would like to own and run a bigger shop in order to create jobs and to increase his income.

A René le ha gustado desde los 10 años trabajar por lo que empezó su propio negocio vendiendo bolos recorriendo los sectores de su tierra natal Portoviejo. Empezó con poco inventario y poco a poco ha ido creciendo por el aumento de clientes, los recorridos los realiza de lunes a viernes todo el día. Para René la época más baja del año es el invierno ya que el clima no ayuda en la venta de su mercadería, también las vacaciones escolares porque ese es uno de sus mejores mercados. Los bolos los vende por unidad a un costo de $ 0.15 ctv., y por paquete a $ 1.80. El vive en feliz unión con Maria Isabel quien realiza trabajos para fiestas infantiles en fomix y su hija quien asiste al jardín de infantes. Con el préstamo que está solicitando comprara bolos y agua para la venta. Le gustaría a futuro poder tener un negocio más amplio para poder dar empleo y mejorar su economía.
