Edilia Yoryolina's story

Edilia is a single 31-year-old mother. She lives north of the city in a rented room. She lives there with her two daughters, ages 11 and 7. Edilia is a woman from an area with a hot climate. That is why when she came to Tulcan, a place with a cold climate, it was very hard for her to adapt. But she was looking for a better quality of life, and only there would she achieve it.

Edilia set up a store in a room of the house she rents. This is how she earns her daily living. She also goes out in the streets in the afternoon to sell groceries door to door to her neighbors. This is how she complements her household income.

Edilia wants to increase her working capital and better stock her store, so she is requesting a loan to purchase packages of noodles, boxes of tuna, arrobas of rice, sugar, cases of milk, buckets of eggs, bread, cheese, and other products in order to offer more to her customers, thereby increasing her sales.
