Simon Bolivar's story

Simón lives in the canton of Manta. He is 48 years old. He is married and has children. He made the decision to look for work in order to continue his children's education and because how no one was giving him the opportunity to work for a company. He decided to raise money in order to open his sewing business. Presently, his business grew little by little until the point of having a customer base. Simón works every day. With this loan, he will buy fabrics, threads, etc. His goal is to have his own sewing workshop and build his home.
