Dayse Paola
Dayse Rodríguez, 32 years old, has a cement house located in the perimeter of Guayaquil. Dayse started by buying a small washing mashine for her family, but since some of her neighboors started asking to do their laundry there, she decided to buy another one. Then, the more people asked for the laundry, the more machines she bought and that was how she started to rent washing machines.

Now Dayse has 15 washing machines, which she rents by $15 per hour. One of the biggest challenges is the continuing wearing of the machines' parts. She lives in a common law marriage and her partner helps with the expenses by doing freights with his car. They have one child, who studies in a public school.

With this loan she wants to buy $ 300.00 of washing machines parts and, in order to improve the machines location, she wants to buy construction materials with $500.00, plus $200 for the labor. In the future, she wants to expand her laundry business and her house.
