Manuela is 43 years old and lives in an urban area of Suburbio de Guayaquil. She is married and has two children aged 20 and 15. Her eldest is in high school and her youngest is deceased.
Manuela started her business (a workshop where she makes sandals) three years ago. She works with another person who makes men's shoes. She works with her assistant from 8.30am to 6.00pm, from Monday to Saturday. Her husband is self employed as a locksmith. With the help of this loan, Manuela would like to buy more products for making footwear such as insoles ($200), straps ($100) and jute fiber ($300). This will increase her capital.
