Edita Pastora
Edita is 60 years old. She has a stall where she sells 'encebollados' and 'guatitas'. Both of these are traditional breakfast dishes. She lives in Playas canton which is one of Ecuador's tourist destinations, noted for its wide variety of seafood.

Edita has been selling meals since she was young in order to help cover the school expenses of her seven children. She began, with her eldest daughter's help, selling 'encebollado' (a dish made from fish, onions and cassava) and 'guatita' (a dish made from tripe and plantains) from a cart. She is continuing in her business. She currently gets up at 3.00am to start preparing her dishes and, when she is finished, she takes the food to her street stall and sells until 2.00pm.

She would like to buy cassava and fish so that she can continue selling her dishes. In the future, she would like to have her own premises. She would also like her business to be more profitable.
