Flor Marisol's story

Flor is 34 years old. She lives in the city of Ibarra, which is in the province of Imbabura. Flor has two children who are in school now. She is a single mother, as the father of her children abandoned them long ago. But Flor did not let this situation stop her. That is how she started her own business to support her family. Flor works selling roasted pig in the city of Otavalo in a busy market. This income allows her to cover her household expenses and the cost of her children's education.

Flor is requesting a loan for buying pigs, as it is cheaper for her to roast them herself, and that way she can generate better profits. Her children are very proud of their mother's efforts, as she is teaching them the value of effort and work to achieve their goals. Every day, Flor seeks a way to generate income to provide a good future for her children.
