A loan of $1,075 helped to buy products for her store.

Julia Antonia's story

Julia lives in the Paraiso del La Flor section of Guayaquil, where some neighborhoods lack utilities other than electricity. Her house is made of cement, but she has to purchase water in tanks. She has a store in her house which she started up thanks to D-MIRO. Once she came up with the idea of this business, she gradually made it into a reality thanks to her perseverance and effort. She works by herself every day without a fixed schedule, because she also must care for her family. She feels satisfied with her achievements because she has gotten ahead on her own, and this has helped her to gain the respect of her friends and neighbors who see in her an example to pass on to others. She is requesting a loan to purchase products for her store so that she can increase her sales. She expects to do this without any difficulties, and to continue working without any problems.
