A loan of $1,575 helped to purchase spare parts for his motorcycle and housewares.


Orlin Stalin's story

Orlin lives in the south of the city of Guayaquil known as La Isla Trinitaria. He is divorced and has two children. He started selling household goods and plastic items, but saved his money over time to purchase a motorcycle. Now he takes fares in a motorcycle that has been made into a tricimoto (a motorcycle with a cart attached for passengers). He works from Monday to Sunday from 7am until 6pm. He will use this loan to purchase spare parts for his motorcycle and household goods so that he can restart his previous business. His goal is to have a large store to sell household goods.
