A loan of $675 helped to buy flour for making donuts.


Anonymous's story

This client lives in Guayaquil and is 60 years old. He has engaged in the retail trade for one year. This borrower enjoys his work because he does it with love. He has a business of selling donuts. After he produces the donuts, he sells them from a tricycle. He works every day by making sales in the neighborhoods of his city. The borrower suffers from a disease called poliomyelitis (which is also called infantile paralysis) and it primarily affects the nervous system. The disease is caused by the polio virus, which infects and destroys the motor neurons. The destruction of the neurons causes muscle weakness and acute flaccid paralysis. He is afraid that his condition will worsen since he now has a mild infection. The borrower is a married man and his wife devotes herself to the household chores. She also sells Omnilife natural products. They have children, but they are already grown. With this loan, the borrower will buy flour for making donuts, which will result in more income.
