A loan of $1,075 helped to buy a chapeadora (lawnmower).

Angel Jacinto's story

Ángel was born in Chone. Currently he lives with his wife and two children in Santo Domingo. Ángel is 33 years old. He began his farming business about 3 years ago. Santo Domingo is a city with plenty of opportunities to start businesses and for economic growth as it is located in central Ecuador and serves as a bridge between the coast and mountain ranges and has been full of commerce and tourism in recent years.

Ángel works from 8 to 10 hours a day in order for his business to succeed and in order to provide a better future and quality of life for the children. So, Ángel is asking for a loan for the first time and upon getting it he wants to invest it in the purchase of a chapeadora (lawnmower). With this machine Ángel could work more rapidly permitting him to finish his contracts faster and accept more proposals. Ángel believes that with this machine he could increase his earnings thereby permitting him to improve the quality of life for himself, his wife, and the two children.
