Ana Justina
Ana, 45, lives in Guasmo, Guayaquil (an urban zone whose residents are informal merchants for the most part). She has a general store where she stocks baked goods, groceries and some stationery items.

When she started out she only sold bread to her neighbors and acquaintances. However, due to their requesting other items, she started to buy groceries until her small bakery turned into a store. During these years she has worked from 5:30am until 11pm every day. She and her husband, who helps out in the store, get up every day to tend to it.

In order to stock it better, she wants to use the loan to buy a freezer and dairy products.

In the future, she’d like to enlarge her store so that sales will increase.
