A loan of $1,200 helped to buy chicken, rice and meat.


Juana Antonia's story

Juana P., 54, is separated and has three adult children. She lives in an outlying area on the south side of Guayaquil that does not have all the basic services and has a high incidence of insecurity. A few years ago she lost her job so she began to prepare meals and little by little began to acquire a regular clientele. Her children help her with the business. Part of the financing will be used to buy chicken, meat and rice for her meal preparations and part will be used for home improvements. Her goal for the future is to build a two-storey house in order to have rooms to rent.
