Miguel Estuardo's story

Miguel is 36 years old and single. He has one child and lives at his parents' house in Chimbo, within the province of Bolívar.

Miguel makes a living making traditional candies including "colaciones" (a sugar based candy), candied popcorn, fried fava beans. He is requesting this loan to buy peanuts, popcorn, sugar, colorings, brown sugar, cinnamon and gelatin.

With the help of this loan he will be able to buy what he lacks in order to work. He will make his purchases within Chimbo.

Despite his age, Miguel's dream is to finish his studies. He faces challenges of competition and poor health. In his free time he likes to read the Bible and other interesting books.
