A loan helped to buy building materials and supplies.


Angel Remigio's story

Ángel, 52, lives in Guayaquil. He started his business working when still very young; his parents taught him the activity. He decided to work in construction and also started out selling building materials and supplies. He works with God’s help and with help from his children. His business does just OK because he says that some months his income is very low but he continues striving to move his family forward. The difficulty he faces is crime; he fears robbers and in winter sales of his products suffer. He’s married and his wife does household chores. He has children who are all adults now and no longer in school. He wants to use the loan to buy building materials and supplies to sell to his customers and also to do repairs in their houses to earn higher income for his family’s expenses.
