A loan of $700 helped cement, sand and stone.

Jessica Del Rocio's story

Jessica T., 35 years old, lives in a semi-urban zone in Paraíso de Guayaquil. Her house is made from cement and cane, and has basic services including water and light. She is single but is pregnant.

Jessica began with a wooden table where she sold art and paintings outside her house, little by little saving money, and then installed a small stationery shop in her house.

Now Jessica works from 7am until 8pm every day. She sells boxes of pens, notebooks, pens, laminate sheets etc. One of the complications of her business is the delinquency.

With the loan she wants to buy cement, stone, and sand to rennovate her business. In the future she wants to have a shop where she has all that her customers request.
