Maria Monserrate's story

Maria Monserrate is 18 years old and single. She is in her last year of school. She lives with her parents in Manta, a prosperous city visited by many tourists who like to enjoy its wonderful beaches and a beautiful fishing port. Most of the people earn a living by fishing.

She is a very-hard-working woman who strives day by day, seeking a way to generate her own income in order to contribute to her household. To do that, Maria has been selling clothing for two years. She takes advantage of her less busy times to go out and offer clothing throughout her same area or to her classmates.

The loan is very helpful to her since it is allowing her to stock up on merchandise. She will invest the loan in the purchase of blouses, T-shirts, pants, Bermuda shorts, and other garments that her customers order. Her dreams are to become a professional and to have a store so that her business continues improving.
