Cecilia Isabel's story

Cecilia W. is 45 years old. She lives in the outskirts of the city on the Perimetral de Guayaquil. She lives in a cement house. She is a single mother of two children; one is 25 and the other is 8.

Two years ago, she began to sell plastic products when a relative gave her an incentive to sell plastic containers, tubs, chairs, etc.

She now has a business in her home where she sells all types of plastic products. She works from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm every day. One of the problems she has is going out to sell her products with the crime in the area where she lives.

With the loan she wants to buy chairs, containers, and tubs for her business. In the future, she wants to have a locale where she can better offer her products.
