Yesica Rocio
Yesica C. is 36 years old and she lives in a suburban area located in Paraíso de Guayaquil. Her house is made of cane and the only utility she has is electricity. Her husband works in a vulcanizing repair shop and together they have a son who is one year and three months old.

Yesica began 2 years ago her business selling candy, ice and sodas to have some income and invest in more products. Little by little she earned enough to set up a small store in her home. Now she sells the pound of meat at $2.5, the pound of chicken $1.5, vegetables by units or by the pound... She works from 7 am to 22 pm every day. One of the main complications of her job is that the main street is unpaved and the rain turns it into mud.

With the loan she wants to purchase canned goods, oil, soft drinks and juices to have more variety in her business. In a future she wants to own a house made of concrete and thus have a better business.
