Laura Elizabeth
Laura has operated a corner grocery in Bastion Popular, a northern neighborhood of Guayaquil, for 9 years. The neighborhood was just developing when she started the business and she has known many of her customers for all the years since then. She started the business after she married because she and her husband had big plans for the future and she wanted to do her part to carry them out. Laura works every day from 6:00 in the morning until 10:00 at night. She sells everyday products--rice, sugar, cold drinks, etc.--and she is applying for a loan that she will use to stock her business. For the future, she wants to improve her house, plastering the parts of the house that haven't been plastered.
