A loan of $1,300 helped to buy a food cart and chairs for his business.


Fernando Xavier's story

This borrower is from the city of Quevedo. He started some time ago when his father taught him the business of selling “morocho” (a warm corn pudding). With the help of God, he was able to make progress and purchase all of his equipment and supplies. He works at his vending stall with his wife. Together they travel to different neighborhoods in order to sell their product. The borrower is in a common-law relationship and has a daughter who attends a state school in the area. In the future he would like to have a house of his own and a car. Most importantly, he wants to remain healthy so that he can provide whatever his daughter needs. For now, the borrower needs a loan so that he can buy a cart and chairs for his business.
