Ludit Francisco's story

Ludit is 39 years old and works selling products made from aluminum and glass. He opened his shop in his home, located in the Orquídeas sector north of Guayaquil. He learned from his older brother, who works in the same business. He began as a helper until little by little he continued learning and was able to achieve independence. Currently he works from Monday to Saturday from 8am to 6pm. He works with a helper since he needs one for the cutting and assembling of the pieces since they are fragile. He has been working in the business for 10 years and he counts on many clients who like his work. Ludit is married and has two children who study in school. With the loan he is going to buy aluminum, pressed glass, rubber and adhesive which he will use to make windows. He hopes in the future to grow his shop, improving his quality of life. His dream is to be able to buy a car that will permit him to give better service.
