Esther Estefania
Esther had been selling vegetables for some 2 years in Cotopaxi, a city in the south of Ecuador near the Cotopaxi volcano. But since her mother was in Guayaquil, she decided to help her in her business and she saved up money to launch a grocery store alongside her mother's. At present, in Guayaquil she is selling vegetables and groceries of primary necessity.

With the loan, she will buy ice cream, fruit, and diapers. One of her goals is to make her business grow more, to become a Mini-Market.
