Julia Angela's story

Julia is 46 years old. She is married and has four children ages 20, 18, 16 and 6. They attend elementary school, high school and college. Her husband is a driver in interprovincial transportation. They live in her parents' house.

They live in the city of Jipijapa, in the province of Manabí, known as the sultana of coffee, with very enterprising people. It is also known for its food, especially its seafood ceviche with peanut sauce. This area was greatly affected by the strong earthquake on April 16, 2016.

Julia sells Tiens, which are nutritional supplements for beauty and personal care and bio-medical kits. The locale where they are distributed in Manta was damaged in the earthquake and Julia's sales decreased as a result. For 20 years she has formed part of the La Sultana credit group. She is a very hardworking and enterprising person. She sells Tiens door to door to friends, family and acquaintances. She also sells from her home. She has a small space there where she keeps her merchandise. She sells every day for two to three hours, alone.

Her biggest sellers are proteins and shampoo. She also sells Yanbal products (beauty products, perfumes, creams and jewelry). She hopes to get her business running again as soon as possible in order to generate income, meet the basic needs of her family and achieve a life with dignity.

With this loan she will buy proteins, beauty creams, massagers, etc. Her dream is to own a big locale in the downtown area of the city with lots of Tiens products and to be a leader.
