A loan of $1,600 helped to buy keychains and other accessories..


Anonymous's story

This client is 31 years old and lives in Guayaquil. He began selling keychains on October 9. Later it was suggested to him that he could sell more at the schools. He has made many sales since he has been able to create a new market for keychains.

The borrower works alone and receives help from no one. He begins his work selling keychains at 8:00 A.M. and finishes at 8:00 P.M. The difficulties that he must face in his work include dealing with his disability (he is blind) and the occasional customer who pays with counterfeit money. Whenever it rains, the ground becomes wet and dangerous since he is at risk of falling. The borrower is not married and has no children.

With this loan, the borrower will buy keychains and other items so that he can increase his business. As a result, he will earn more income. His goals for the future include being healthy, improving his financial situation, and having a house of his own. He would also like to provide jobs to people who have the same disability so that they can get ahead.
