Yenny Dolores
Yenny, 38 years of age, lives in an urban area of El Guasmo (part of a suburb where many retailers reside) of Guayaquil. Her husband works in transportation, and they have three children ages 19, 17, and 9.

Yenny has a food stand on the street outside her house. When she started, she only had a table and kitchenette for selling her food. Little by little, her business grew, and she had the opportunity to buy more chairs and tables. Since then, she works from 6:30 until 12:00 every day. She sells bolones (bananas and cheese that she rolls up into small balls), orange juice. One of the challenges is that she doesn’t have a locale for her business, and her food sales stand is on the street.

She would like to use the loan to buy flour and cooking oil to make more food. In the future, she would like to have her own proper location for her business.
