This client is from the Fortín sector in Guayaquil. She learned her business years ago by taking public art courses. She works making arts and crafts. She works alone from 8am until 4pm. She’s married and her husband is a driver; she has three children attending the local public school. She hopes in future to be able to have a shop of her own with more merchandise than what she produces currently.
