A loan of $800 helped to buy more seasonal merchandise.


Anonymous's story

This borrower lives in Guayaquil. He started his business 25 years ago at the central market. He chose this line of work because his parents were merchants.


The borrower works alone since his wife devotes herself to taking care of their home and their children. He sells electronic goods. The borrower suffers from a disease that impacts his leg. He has had this condition for 40 years and it makes his work difficult. His disease was brought about as a result of a street fight. The borrower has a stand made of platinum since he lacks an extremity. He is married and has two children who attend a state school.


With this loan, the borrower will buy seasonal merchandise. In the future, he wants to expand his business to a level in which his wife can manage her own stand. He wants to provide for the welfare of his family, but most of all for his children.
