Mirella is 43 years old and lives in Guasmo de Guayaquil (an urban zone whose inhabitants mainly work in sales on the informal economy). She has a store in her home, called a "bazar" in Ecuador, in which she sells items such as school supplies, paper goods, and soft drinks.
She started her own school supply store years ago, not only for the sake of independence and because of her separation from her husband, but also to cover her children's expenses. With effort and dedication, she has been able to expand her store's inventory. She works starting at 8:00 in the morning.
With the loan, she would like to buy notebooks, paper sheets and laminated educational materials to further expand her store's inventory. In the future, she would like to have a store in downtown Guayaquil. .
