Margot Marisol
Margot, 39, lives in Fortín de Guayaquil (a periurban area with unpaved streets and eroding hillsides). She has had a grocery store for over 15 years that provides support for her two children.

She started out selling rice, sugar and canned goods to acquaintances and neighbors in order to make enough money. When her children return home from school they help her tend to the store and once they finish their homework they watch the store while she prepares the meal. She is open for business from 6:30am until 9pm, Monday through Friday.

To increase her stock inventory, she wants to use the loan to buy rice, pasta and canned goods.

In the future she’d like to buy a piece of property to move her store into a better neighborhood.
