Jenny Elizabeth's story

Jenny N., 29, lives in a periurban area along Guayaquil's beltway in a cement house that has all basic utilities. She is separated and has two children enrolled in public school.

Jenny began selling prepared meals from a window in her house and bit by bit earned enough to make her food stall into a store. Now, Jenny works from 8am until 9pm selling notebooks, pens, styrofoam, etc. One of the difficulties she faces is the lack of street lighting in her area.

She will use the funds to buy a display case, notebooks, pens, sheets of paper to enlarge her stock. In the future, she wants to open a branch of her store and also set up her house so that she doesn't have to sell her paper goods through her window anymore.
