33 year old Patricia lives in a town called Playas, one of the tourist spots of Ecuador, which is known for its seafood. She is separated and has 2 children of 12 and 7 years old who are both in school. She runs a stationary store.
She began doing this a while ago after seeing that her neighborhood didn't have a stationers where the students could buy their school supplies, so they had to go to the town center, which was dangerous for them. She has been growing her business over time, and today you can find everything in her store. She works from 6:00am until 7:00pm every day. She wants to use the loan to buy materials for her store such as display cases, notebooks, and sheets of paper, all in order to supply her store. What she wants much is to have a more secure and appropriate store so that she can continue growing her customer base. For her children, she hopes to give them a safer place to live.
