Esperanza Soledad's story

Esperanza, 63, is a widow who has 5 grown children. She lives in Manta, one of the most important cities for business and tourism on the coast of Ecuador. Here, the gastronomy is exquisite, and there are beaches, hotels, and other sites of interest for tourists.

Esperanza is a very hardworking woman who enjoys earning her own living. Even though she is on her own, she seeks a way to cover the household expenses.

She offers a variety of products for sale, including: rice, cooking oil, tuna, drinks, and other products to meet the needs of her customers. At times, she also sells clothing.

Esperanza will use this loan to stock her store and buy clothing to sell. Her dream is to continue to improve her store and grow the business.
