Anonymous's story

The client was born in Guayaquil. He was a bricklayer. However, in order to improve his income he started a business of selling juices and tostadas. He has had this business activity for 12 years.

He has a stand along an important part of the Perimetral Highway where there are a lot of people passing by. This is because it is a main street. This business activity has allowed him to improve his income and that of his family. He does this work together with his wife from six in the morning until four in the afternoon.

He has a daughter with a hearing impairment. She is now receiving treatment, and he works every day in order to give his daughter a better opportunity. The client also supports his granddaughter, and he paid for her education.

He wants to continue helping his daughter and his family. Therefore, he wants to use the loan to buy fruits, breads, and a juice machine. The goals or dreams of the client are to have a least two more juice carts and to continue building his home.
