A loan of $625 helped to buy uniforms and school supplies for his children.

Armando Efrain's story

Sr. Armando lives in Guayaquil. He was in the military reserves, but later left the service so that he could acquire his own business. Armando bought a taxi and now he works every day by himself.

His main concern is crime since he works in very dangerous places where robbers could climb into his taxi. He is also afraid of his wife and children being able to take care of themselves should something happen to him. However, his family provides him the strength that needs to pursue the goals that he wants to achieve.

Armando is married and his wife helps with the household chores. They have three children (ages 6, 10, and 12), all of whom attend a state school. For this reason, Armando is requesting a loan in order to buy uniforms and school supplies for his children since they are already back in school. (Armando appears in the photo with his wife and three children.) He wants to provide them with a better education.
