Honorio Gabriel's story

In the city of Portoviejo, capital of Manabí, known for many years as the city of real tamarinds, the group El Arbolito 4 (The little tree) meets every 15 days.

It is here that Mr. Honorio, who is 21 years old, a bachelor and lives at home with his parents. He studies at the university. This is his first loan with the communal bank and he likes it because this loan will help him to expand his business, he also likes to low interest rates.

Besides studying, he also runs a small business. He has a bar in his house where he sells sodas, water and other drinks. He has also made a farmyard in which he raises livestock from which he makes a good profit. It is with this profit that he is able to pay for his studies. He has been running his businesses for four years.

This loan will be used to purchase soft drinks, water, juices, energy drinks and food for the livestock.

His dream is to finish his studies.
