Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is a single 26 year-old professional chauffeur. He lives in Santo Domingo, the capital of Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas province in Ecuador which has seen sustainable growth over the last several years. The capital city's most attractive items are the delicious fruits and tourist destinations. It also serves as an important business hub as it facilitates trade between the Sierra and Costa del Pais regions. In addition, the city relies on its attractive tourist destinations that along with it's warm weather attracts many tourists both domestic and foreign.

Jorge makes a living raising livestock which is then sold on the market. He does this full-time and now needs to improve the structure of the pigpen so that he is able to sell the animals at a better price thus increasing his income. For this reason he seeks a loan that will allow him to obtain the tools and materials needed to achieve this goal and be successful despite his lack of education that prevents him from finding opportunities in other industries.
