Roxana lives in the Cantón Libertad in the Santa Elena province. She is married, and she has two children who go to a public school that is close to her area.
Roxana started with the hope of working because her husband was left without work for several years. That was when she made the decision to start as a merchant selling clothes. She started selling to her relatives, and after that she sold to her neighbors in the area because she was a little bashful.
She thought that her business would fail, but at the present time it is going well for her as a merchant. She works Mondays through Fridays from eight in the morning until five in the afternoon.
She wants to use the loan to buy blouses, pants, and shorts, etc. Her goal is to have her own place and not have to walk around selling her merchandise on the streets.
Roxana vive en el cantón Libertad de la provincia de Santa Elena. Ella es casada tiene 2 hijos que asisten a una escuela pública cerca de su sector. Roxana comenzó con la ilusión de trabajar ya que su esposo hace varios años se había quedado sin trabajo y fue entonces que tomo la decisión empezar como comerciante de venta de ropa. Comenzo vendiendo a sus familiares después a los vecinos del sector ya que era un poco vergonzosa. Ella pensó que su negocio iba a fracasar, pero en la actualidad le va bien como comerciante. Trabaja de lunes a viernes de 8 de la mañana hasta las 5 de la tarde. Con el préstamo quiere comprar blusas, pantalones, shorts, etc. Su meta es tener su local propio y no andar vendiendo su mercadería en la calles
