A loan of $1,000 helped to buy an industrial stove.


Anonymous's story

The client lives in Guayaquil. He started his business two years ago when his aunt helped him financially in order to buy some things to have his own restaurant. Little by little, with the help of his brother because he has a car wash, he started to get income.

He currently has a restaurant where he sells lunches. His brother helps him because the car wash customers stop by to have lunch at his restaurant. He works from 5:00 a.m until 2:30 p.m. At times his difficulty is that he is PVVS (person living with HIV/AIDS). However, this does not hinder 100% performance because he has a person who cooks on the days when he is not able to tend to his business.

He has a lot of aspirations for his restaurant. Therefore, he wants to use the loan to buy an industrial stove in order to be able to cook a greater volume.
