Cinthya Gabriela
Cinthia is a young mother who belongs to the communal bank Los Claveles, in the city of Portoviejo. They meet in the house of one of the members in the residential community of Francisco Pacheco in the outskirts of the city.

Cinthia was married at the age of 16. She has one child and is 6 months pregnant with her second child. With her husband she has been able to have her own business. From the time she was very young she started working with her mother, now she has a fast food business located in a very busy outdoor area where many children and adults come for recreation and sports.

For Cinthia it has not been complicated preparing the meals, since she has had a lot of experience. Once she has everything ready she goes to her place of work where, beginning at 3 in the afternoon, she sets up the cart where she attends to her customers until 10 at night. Once she finishes with everything she brought to sell, she prepares fast food: frozen desserts, tostadas, skewers of meat, and other items. She invests 45 dollars each week to prepare her dishes.

For Cinthia, this business has been a great help because she can contribute to the household expenses. She is very grateful to the foundation for the help that it provides. This time she is requesting a new loan that she will use to remodel her cart and to buy new chairs and tables.

Cinthia desires to be able to have her own house, and to make her business grow in the same place that she has, but to give more food options to her demanding customers.
