Dayana Liseth's story

Dayana is 22 years old, is married and from this relationship has one 4-year-old child. Her husband is a taxi driver. They live with their in-laws in Manta, a prosperous city, visited by many tourists who like to enjoy its marvelous beaches and beautiful fishing port, where the majority of people work in fishing.

She is a very hardworking woman who likes to earn her resources and in this way help her husband to move forward. In order to achieve this, for two years she has worked raising pigs in her house, which she takes to sell when they have finished their growth cycle. She sells by weight or whole based on her customers order. For her this loan is of great help because it permits her to continue improving her quality of life and her business.

This loan is going to be used to purchase vitamins, feed and other products that she needs for her animals. Her dream is that her business continues improving.
