Marlene, age 31, is a hard-working woman who began her business 6 years ago with a small amount of capital. She lives in an urban zone called Suburbio, and her stationery store is located in the front part of her house (in Ecuador they are called "bazars"). She started this business because her husband became ill and did not have a way of helping the household economically. She currently works from very early in the morning selling notebooks, stationery, quills, etc. She has many aspirations for her business, and for this reason she wants to use the loan to buy wholesale articles for her stationery store, such as: notebooks, toys, and quills. One of her goals with the business is to stock it with enough merchandise and to improve her home.
