Isidra Francisca
Isidra is 43 years old. She sells fast food from a wagon. She lives in Paraíso de Guayaquil (a district on the outskirts of Guayaquil, where the roads are dirt and the houses are located in the mountains).

Three years ago she began her business of selling fast food from a little cart. For lack of (other) income, she continued with her little cart, selling hamburgers, french fries, hot dogs, and drinks to be able to help with the family expenses. The cart is located five blocks from her house. With the help of her children, she has been able to take turns (attending the cart) at night and obtain more income. Because of her children's help, everything has gone well for her so far.

She wants to use the loan to buy meat and chicken to prepare more fast food. In the future, she wants to improve her house since it is now made of bricks.
