A loan helped to buy uniforms, nylons and shoes.


Judith Isabel's story

Judith is 29 years old and is a single mother. She has a seven year old child and she lives with her parents in Manta, one of the most important cities in terms of tourism and business on the Ecuadorian coast. The city offers exquisite dining, beaches, hotels, and other sites for tourism. Judith is a very hard-working woman who struggles every day to earn a living in order to help her son get ahead. For this reason she rents a store where she runs her business buying and selling school uniforms for all of the educational institutions in the area. She has been working in this field for one year and it has allowed her to improve her quality of life. This loan will be of great help for her as she continues with her business. She will use the money to buy uniforms, nylons and shoes. Her dream is to have her own store from which she can run her business.
