A loan of $600 helped to buy coats for men and women.


William Ernesto's story

William is 28 years old and he is single. He has one 7-year-old child with whom he lives in the city of Guaranda in the Bolívar province. He is a member of the Los Pinos communal bank. It is made up of 14 members who are from the same community where they work in agriculture and are 40 minutes from the Pangua Community Office.

William makes a living in agriculture planting corn and wheat. He also makes a living selling wool coats for ladies and gentlemen. He is requesting a loan to buy coats for men and women. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy the merchandise that he really needs. He will make the purchases in the city of Quito and carry out sales inside and outside of the Bolívar province.

His dream is to get better orders and to sell abroad. The challenges that he faces are competition and the poverty of everyday life.

In his free time he likes to play sports, volleyball in particular.
