A loan of $800 helped to buy natural products.

Anonymous's story

The borrower lives in Guayaquil and is 33 years old. He began selling items for the home many years ago, but later fell seriously ill and because of his condition began to draw down the household income. He began to take natural products for his health and then began to sell them to family members and friends.

He sells his natural products on his own and does it from 9:00 in the morning until 7:00 in the evening. The difficulty that arises in his work is his illness, which does not allow him to carry on his work normally, as he is a person living with HIV/AIDS. He is not married, nor does he have children.

He will use the loan to buy natural products to sell them to his friends and acquaintances. He wishes in the future to be able to expand his business to create a natural products sales network, so that he can give work opportunities to more people who have the same problem as him. He wants to remain with his family and be able to have a better quality of life.
