Marina's story

Marina B. G. is 48 years old and married with five children. Three of her children are grown and married, and the other two are single but independent. She has been running a general store out of her family home in Paraiso (a marginalized zone in Guayaquil) for three years. She sells cooking oil, vegetables, water, juice, cola, rice, meat, and treats. Ms. B. generally works alone from 6 am to 9 pm while her husband is off working as a docker.

She would like to use this loan to buy more merchandise for her shop and to replace parts of her cane home/business with a sturdier and safer alternative. In the future, Ms. B. dreams of opening her own store, helping her kids and improving her home. She is thankful for any support!
