A loan of $1,100 helped to buy dirt, wood, and sawdust for making construction blocks.


Francisco Eduardo's story

Francisco was born in Manta. He has a business of producing construction blocks out of dirt, wood, sawdust, and other materials. Francisco started in this line of work 13 years ago with his family, but now he has managed his own business for one year. He wants to continue growing his business since this type of work is all he has ever known since childhood. Francisco completes the work with an assistant who accompanies him. They work from 5:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.


In his business, he works with dirt, wood, and sawdust. The challenges he faces in his business include dealing with illnesses and bad weather. Franciso is a single man with no children. He manages his business alone for his own welfare, so he is in need of assistance. With this loan, he will be able to buy dirt, wood, and sawdust for making more building blocks. His goals and dreams with this loan include obtaining additional materials to have on hand. He would also like to have more workers so that he can produce more bricks, thereby generating more income.
