Victoria Antonieta's story

Victoria P., 49, lives in a periurban zone along Guayaquil's beltway in a cement house that has all basic utilities. She has been divorced for several years and has no children. Years ago, Victoria started to sell prepared lunches to employees of a construction company near her house. Gradually, she earned enough to set up a small eatery in her home. Now, Victoria works alone, from Monday through Friday preparing dishes like: rice and beans, meat with mashed potatoes, ceviches, meat broths, chicken, vegetables, etc. Her daily profits average $30.00. One of her obstacles is that she has very little space available for her customers. She will use the funds to buy cement, stone, and sand to build a better space in her house for her eatery. In the future, she would like to buy an industrial stove and to have her own space.
