Maricela Paulina
Mariela is 26 years old. She is a modest woman who lives with her husband Marcos and their two-year-old son in Santo Domingo.

Santo Domingo is the fourth most populated city in Ecuador. It is located in the coastal region of the country and stands as a point of connection between the largest cities in Ecuador, Quito and Guayaquil. Its climate is warm and it is home to great cultural, financial, administrative, and commercial institutions.

Approximately two years ago, she started a business raising pigs for sale in order to help her husband financially, since there are times when he doesn't have any income because he is self-employed. He works as a longshoreman.

Mariela is a visionary woman and she plans to use the loan she is requesting to invest in building sheds over her pigpens. This will allow her to keep the animals she sells cleaner and better protected, so that her profit may increase and her business expand.

She enjoys her work, because it allows her time to raise and care for her young child.

Maricela es una mujer sencilla de 26 años que vive a su esposo Marcos y su hijo de 2 años; ella vive en Santo Domingo.
Santo Domingo es la cuarta ciudad más poblada del Ecuador, está ubicada en la región costa y es un punto de enlace entre las ciudades más grandes del Ecuador (Quito y Guayaquil), posee un clima cálido y alberga grandes organismos culturales, financieros, administrativos y comerciales.
Hace más o menos 2 años inicio su negocio en la crianza de cerdos para la venta, con el propósito de ayudar a su esposo económicamente, ya que en ocasiones su esposo no cuenta con ingresos, por motivos que trabaja independientemente como estibador.
Maricela es una mujer visionaria y con este crédito que solicita, piensa invertirlo en la construcción de galpones para las chanceras, ya que de esta manera mantendría a sus animales más limpios y protegidos para la venta y así aumentaría sus ganancias y creer en este negocio.
Le gusta esta actividad ya que le queda tiempo para criar y educar a su pequeño hijo.
