Blanca Marina's story
Blanca is 50 years old and lives in the city of Tulcán, located on Ecuador's northern border with Colombia. She is married and lives with her family. She has four children, aged 28, 25, 23, and 20 years. She is an entrepreneurial person with a peaceful, kind, and tolerant character. With her loan, Blanca will purchase materials including paints and brushes for her pottery business, which she runs from her home. She reports that her business began with very few ceramic products that she sold to her close friends and neighbors. Her business has since expanded and she has some regular clients. Blanca has been getting credit from FODEMI for six years and has found that she has increased her sales so that she could provide a better quality of life for her children. Her goals for the future are to continue to have faith and hope, and to proceed with the support of her family.
