Zoraya, 38-years-old, lives in Primavera de Duran (an outlying area with a disappearing ecosystem in the outskirts of Guayaquil). Ever since she separated from her husband she's had a restaurant in order to support her two children.
She began with one table and one chair, selling food to her acquaintances and neighbors, but as the demand for her food increased she decided to buy more tables and locate her business in a shop. As a result of that good decision she now works with one of her daughters from morning to evening making dishes such as "Yapingachos," (stuffed potato patties) "guatita," (beef stew) etc.
In order to be able to continue her business she needs to buy more supplies such as rice, meat, and drinks. In the future she wants to expand her business and have multiple restaurant locations.
