Elizabeth Haidee
Elizabeth, 40, has a small grocery store in the front part of her house. She lives in a canton called Playas, one of Ecuador’s tourist destinations rich in seafood.

When she was little she helped her mother in the store they had at home. As she grew up she realized that having her own business would be a better way for her to earn her own money. Gradually, with effort, she bought foodstuffs and set up a small store in the front part of her house. She is open for business from 7am until 10pm. Sometimes she works at a pharmacy to earn extra income and her oldest daughter tends to the store when she has to go out.

She will use the loan to buy rice, cooking oil and bed sheets to sell to new customers. In the future she’d like to have a minimarket to help cover her children’s expenses and to help out her father economically.
