Ismailda Villaldama's story

Ismailda Villaldama, 65, is married and has 2 adult children. One of her daughters is studying for a Master's degree. Her husband works in retail. They live in Manta, one of the largest business and tourism cities along Ecuador's coast.

Ismailda Villaldama is a happy, friendly woman who works hard every day with her husband to earn a living. Sometimes, they don't earn enough to cover some expenses and needs. This situation is much more common now that their daughter decided to go for her Master's. For this reason, they need a loan to buy a computer and printer so she can fulfill her obligations.

This loan is to buy a computer and printer. Her dream is for her daughter to progress in life because of her degree.
