Erika Viviana's story

Erika is a woman of 29 years of age, enthusiastic and entrepreneurial. She is single and lives alone in her house in the community of Huaca. She has a bachelor's degree, but she hasn't been able to obtain steady work. For this reason, she continues working in her nursery, which she has had functioning for two years. The principal advantage of her business is that it is located on the Pan-American Highway, where all the vehicles that travel through Ecuador from the north to the south circulate.

Erika plans to improve her nursery, for which she is applying for the support of the lenders to buy: a few more meters of land where she can expand her nursery, in addition to compost, substrate, bags, seeds, and pots.

Erika has a goal for the future of continuing to study and getting a master's degree.
