This borrower is from Guayaquil. He started his business 10 years ago after he suffered an accident at work that left him blind. Despite this disability, he continued to forge ahead and now he has his own business.

The borrower works with the help of his wife. Their work schedule is from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. He is married and his wife is also a merchant. (his wife is pictured in the photo) They have three children, but two of them are studying at a private school. One is on scholarship for being an excellent student.

With this loan, the borrower will buy microwave ovens, hot plates, and blenders. His dreams include having a business at an established location. As a result, he will be able to provide a better life for his children in hopes that they will attain the education they need to get ahead.
