Anonymous's story

This borrower lives in Guayaquil. He has a fish business that he started on his own, because he learned this trade from his father when he was a child. He works from 4 in the morning until noon, and he has 2 people who help him with the fish orders.

One of the difficulties this borrower faces is that he is missing one of his hands, which he lost 10 years ago. Because of this, the work is difficult for him. But he doesn't give up; in spite of this difficulty, he has managed to keep moving forward so that he can support his family. He is married and has 3 children who attend a public school. His wife is a housewife who takes care of the household tasks.

With this loan, he wants to buy a machine so that he can fish better. He dreams of being able to improve his house and provide his children with a better education, because he has a lot of faith in them.
