Hipólito lives in the city of Manta. He is married and his children are adults and thus are independent. When Hipólito retired from his job as a police officer he invested his money in the purchase of a car and so now he is a taxi driver. His wife is a dressmaker and helps him with household expenses. He gets up for work at 5 a.m. and finishes his work day at 9 p.m. His goal is to buy two more cars and so provide work for those who do not have it. With the loan
Hipólito will purchase tires, a horn for the vehicle, etc.
