Grendy Limania
Grendy is 33 years old and she lives in the Paraíso de la Flor area of the city of Guayaquil. She has a service business renting out motorised rickshaws. She started up the business with her husband Edison by buying two vehicles. Her husband bought one of them with the savings he had from various jobs, and she bought the second with a loan she requested. Her husband drives one of them and she rents the other one to a private individual who picks up the vehicle from her home and then returns it later. This is her only business and she spends the rest of her time looking after her home. Her greatest worry is delinquency or that someone will damage the vehicles so that they can't work. Her husband also works as a mechanic and with this they cover their expenses. They have three daughters aged 15, 12 and 1 who attend public school.

With the loan, they will buy a motorcycle engine and material to repair the vehicles.
