Tania Liliana
Tania is a 19-year-old woman. She lives together with her husband, Luis, with whom she has a little girl. Her little one still stays with them, because she is only two years old. They live in Santo Domingo de los Colorados, a city with a lovely climate, known in Ecuador because the Tsachila ethnic group lives there.

Tania is a very hardworking young lady. For two years now she has worked as a mobile clothes vendor. She passes through the neighborhoods in the company of her husband. They work at this business because her father-in-law has given them a plot of land, and little by little, with these earnings they have been able to build their home. The home isn’t completely finished, but they live there.

Her husband Luis also works as a painter. He gets jobs and paints by contract. This work is sporadic; their strength is the clothing business.

Tania recognizes the need to get a loan because she needs capital to buy tops, shirts, and pants, because they are going to begin selling in other neighborhoods and they have to invest. She turned to Fundación Alternativa, which was able to help her. She is happy because, thanks to Kiva and this organization, she will be able to expand her business and, in the end, improve her little home.
