Nory Isabel's story

Nory A. is 41 years old and lives in the suburbs of Fortín de Guayaquil. She has the basic services of water and light in her home. Her husband is a driver and they have three children ages: 26, 20, 18.

For economic reasons she had to leave her job as an informal merchant. Fifteen years ago Nory and her husband sold a car they had and used the money they got to open a paper store.

Right now she has her own store in Fortín. She starts working at six in the morning and her daughter helps her. She also sells clothing and perfumes in the paper store. One of the high risk factors in her business is delinquency.

She wants to buy notebooks, clothing, and shoes with her loan money to increase her business. She would like to expand her business to all of Ecuador in the future.
