Maria Cecilia's story

Maria Cecilia and her family live in the canton of Rocafuerte, a canton which is known for its delicious sweets which the locals make and which are known throughout the country.

She is a hard-working woman who earns her resources with her labor and, with her income, helps her spouse with the household expenses. She has a small artisan sweets factory. There, she makes different varieties of sweets such as alfajores, cocadas, almond cookies, troliches, huevos moyos, bizcochuelo, and enrollados. She delivers the sweets to merchants, or her spouse brings them to sell in a place which he has at the terminal.

She will use this loan to purchase milk, eggs, flour, butter, sugar, and other ingredients to make the sweets. Her dream is to have a larger sweets factory with her own retail space for sales.
