Ana Cecilia's story

Ana T., 50, has a cement house that has basic services like running water and paved streets. Her house in is an outlying area of Guayaquil. She is separated from her husband with whom she had 3 children, all of whom are now adults. Ana started to sell cosmetics motivated by the fact that she had to support her household after her separation from her husband. Now, Ana goes out every afteroon to sell Yanbal, Romanel, and Esika products; all of them via catalogue sales. One of her biggest obstacles is having to go to all her sales areas on foot or by bus and not having a fixed sales point. With this financing, she wants to buy $200 worth of perfumes, $200 worth of earrings, and the rest will be used for home improvements. In the future, Ana would like to set up a store in her home in order to have more stability in her business.
