Felipe Adrian
Felipe lives in Guayaquil. He started his business improvising selling turnovers and gradually improved his business. With income he earned, he decided to buy a used vehicle to be able to sell more of his turnovers. He gradually sold to more customers because he was now able to move from place to place better.

He currently wants to improve his business by establishing it in a permanent, stable site. He works alone rising at four in the morning to make the ‘coladas’ [traditional beverage made from oatmeal], coffee and turnovers that he then sets out to sell until one in the afternoon. He’s married and his wife is a housewife; he has no children.

He wants to use this loan to buy flour, meat, cheese and oatmeal to make more turnovers. His dream is to be able to increase business and make improvements at home especially to his way of life.
