Anonymous's story

This client lives in Guayaquil and is 56 years of age. He started his business a long time ago with his brother, who taught him this line of work. After he gradually learned the trade, he was able to obtain his own business of installing ceramic tiles.

He and his son work together every day from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. His wife sells cosmetics, but she only works two days and does not earn much money for their children’s education and the household expenses. Their two children attend a state school. On the weekends when school is not in session, they help their father with his work so that they can all get ahead.

With this loan, he will buy more tools for his business such as hammers, rulers, and ceramic tiles. This will help him to obtain more work and also make improvements to his home. As a result, he can improve his family’s welfare.
