Adita Alicia's story

Adita P., 46, lives in a cement house, that has all the basic services, in Paraíso de Guayaquil. Her husband is a taxi driver and they have four children, who are 28, 24, 20, and 17-year-old, respectively. Adita began home delivery of prepared meals and, little by little, with effort and dedication, was able to enhance her business. She is now situated in a fixed site and has converted it into a roasted chicken establishment. Now, Adita starts her work day at 6am with her husband and one of her sons. One of the challenges she faces is the level of delinquency in the area; there have been several robbery attempts. She wants to use the funds to buy chickens and rice to enlarge her business. In the future, she would like to further enhance the business by buying tables and chairs in order to improve quality; she also wants to enlarge the kitchen.
