Jovenes Emprendedores Group's story

This group of young entrepreneurs is made up of three young people from the city of Cayambe. These young people look for ways to get ahead and face life’s adversities and they are doing it thanks to their daily hard work and effort.

Christian is 22 years old and the group’s president. He lives with his wife in the rural Cusubamba parish of the city of Cayambe. Christian is known for being charismatic, happy, hardworking, enterprising, and with a great desire to get ahead and provide the best for his wife.

He is asking for a loan through Fodemi so that he can buy shirts and black sweatshirts that he can mark with police insignia and sell them to the GEMA antidrug squad of the Ecuadorian police. He has had this business for more than two years and it has provided excellent results and he has managed to improve his family’s quality of life.

Christian wants to achieve his dream of his wife making shirts and sweatshirts and for his family to have a small business, selling clothing to police forces.

In this group: Christian, Jefferson, Roberto
