A loan of $1,075 helped to buy an industrial stove and general supplies.


Isrrael Rufino's story

Isrrael lives in the northern sector of the city of Guayaquil named Las Orquídeas. He is married and has two children. He began his business, which is food sales, 12 years ago. Because of the lack of employment in his country, he could not find work, and so he decided to open the business of food sales in his home. He works with his wife from Monday through Friday from 10 in the morning until 10 at night.

With the loan, he will buy a new industrial stove and general supplies. His dream is to have a great restaurant well-known in the country for its typical Ecuadorian food.
