Diana Elizabeth's story

The town of Portoviejo was affected by the April 16, 2016 earthquake. Reconstruction is currently taking place. The area grows a lot of vegetables, greens, and tropical fruit for internal consumption.

34-year old Diana has a partner, a 3-year old son, and a 7-month old baby. Her partner sells and installs security equipment. They live in a rented house.

Diana sells and distributes steel jewelry that she buys in Colombia, Cuenca, and Guayaquil. She has three sales agents who travel around in the streets of the province selling the jewelry. They work from Monday to Saturday, selling on credit and collecting the money monthly or when customers order more merchandise. Diana also helps her partner sell security equipment.

With this new loan she will continue buying surgical steel jewelry, security cameras, electrical circuits etc.

Diana's dream is to have a house of her own and premises where she can sell the jewelry.
