Noel Alfredo's story

Noel lives in Manta canton. He is 50 years old, single, and has children. He made the decision to look for work so that his children could continue their education. As no one was giving him the opportunity to work at a company, he decided to raise money to open his business, which is cooking fast foods.

Currently his business has been growing gradually, to the point where it has a clientele. Noel works alone, mornings and evenings daily. With the loan he will buy clothing, kitchen supplies, and various other items. His goal is to have his own business and build his house.
