A loan of $1,400 helped to buy lottery tickets to sell.


Francisco Rigoberto's story

The client lives in the Orquídeas area of Guayaquil. He decided to get involved in this business because he wished to be his own boss and be self-employed. He works every day from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m.

He is married and his wife is a housewife. He has three children who are minors and go to public schools. Someday he wishes to see his children finish their studies and to increase his business significantly. Now he needs a loan in order to purchase lottery tickets to sell.
