Maritza Elizabeth
Maritza is 44 and lives in Primavera de Duran (Duran is an area on the edge of the city that once had hills, streams, and small lakes. These can still be seen as remains of a deteriorating environment). She has a stationary store.

To be able to cover the household expenses, she had to invest her savings since her husband, a chauffeur, would work traveling to the provinces of Ecuador and wouldn't come back through the house. She purchased notebooks, stationary, and paper items. Little by little with effort, she has been able to expand her business. She works from 8 am until 7 pm.

She wants to use the loan to invest in notebooks and backpacks for her store. In the future, she wants to stock her business with new products.
