Linda Azucena
Linda lives in a suburb of the city of Guayaquil. She is married and has two children; one is four years old and the other is three years old.

Linda bought a display case and a sales rack, and it was then that she began her business selling laminated educational sheets, notebooks, and other stationary store items. She attends to her small business alone, and works from eight in the morning until ten at night. At first, her area had a lot of crime and there wasn't a lot of productivity for her business. However, with the passing of time, these conditions have improved and her business is doing well.

Her dream is to be able to grow her business more so that she is able to meet the needs of all the customers who come to buy products every day from her stationary store. Linda would like to fix up her home, and another one of her dreams is to buy a car for herself.

With this loan, she will buy items for her stationary store, like paper products, laminated educational sheets, ballpoint pens, etc.
