A loan of $650 helped to buy work tools.


Eduardo Marcelo's story

Eduardo, 25, lives in Manta and works as a master builder. He earns money this way to support his family. He works Monday through Saturday. He does construction work, wall repairs, he paints walls, etc. He fears becoming ill because he’s a man alone who has a little boy attending public school that he has to support and cover household and schooling costs. He’s separated from his wife and wants to use this loan to buy work tools in order to do better work at the sites he’s sent to. What he most wants is to become a master builder who is well-known by everyone.
