She has two children, Ronny who is 7 and Tania who is 3 years old. They live in the house of family members in Pastocalle. This area is famous for farming and raising livestock.

Blanca has proved herself to be a fighter and an entrepreneur. With the sacrifice and effort of her parents she was able to complete her Secondary school and once she had done this she had to work. Blanca has had a lot of obstacles in her life and in her marriage but with the help of her children and her parents she has manged to get ahead.

For the lack of money at the beginning of her marriage she had to find a way to help her husband with the expenses and she started to raise small animals. This was a big help for her family and she discovered a talent. Then she decided to start a beauty salon where she sells beauty products and clothing by catalog.

Blanca is requesting a loan to invest in the improvement of her house and to buy more product as her business has been accepted and embraced by the people who live around her. Her orders are continually growing. Today Blanca wants to extend a sincere thank you and congratulations to Fundación Alternativa in Ecuador and Kiva to making this growth in her personal and business life possible.
