A loan of $425 helped to buy stationery goods.

Galo's story

Galo, age 64, lives in Guayaquil (suburb). He works selling chicken in the winter. In the summer he works with various items that he sells to his neighbors in order to have more income for his family.

He works alone from 8:00 in the morning until 2:00 in the afternoon. He fears getting sick and not being able to continue working because he is the only one who works in his house. He is married, and his wife is a housewife. He has children, but they are now adults.

He will use the loan to invest in stationery goods to sell. He will do this because it is now the school season in the Costa del Ecuador, and school supplies sell very rapidly.

In the future he wishes to have a tricycle in order to be able to better distribute his chicken and the products he sells in the summer.
