Marisol Marjorie's story

Marisol C. is 39 years old and lives in her parent’s house in an urban zone of the Suburbio de Guayaquil. She is a single mother and has two children who are 8 years old and 1 year old.

She began selling earrings 3 years ago. When she separated from her husband, she needed to cover the expenses for her children, so she decided to have her own business in her home.

Now she has her business in her home in which she sells earrings, perfumes, creams, and other personal items. She works from 10:00am to 2:00pm every day. One of the complications that she has is going out to sell her products because of the delinquency that exists in the sector where she lives.

With the loan requested, she wants to purchase clothing, cosmetics, and perfumes for her business. In the future, she wants to have her own house and another store.
