Aida Gardenia's story

Aida, 55, is married and has five adult children. Her husband is disabled and they live in Manta, a prosperous city which is visited by many tourists who enjoy its marvelous beaches.

Aida is a woman who struggles daily to get ahead looking for ways to earn her own economic income as well as help her husband with the household expenses. Therefore she sells a variety of toys and in her free time goes out through different areas offering her merchandise. She also has a small space at home where her most frequent customers visit when they need something she has on sale.

This loan will be invested in the purchase of toys so she can continue her sales. Her dream is to be able to add a clothing line so her business can continue to prosper.
