Paola Monserrate's story

Paola Monserrate is 36 years old, separated and has 2 children: 12 and 1 year old. They live at a relative's house in the city of Manta known for its beautiful beaches that are very popular all year round.

Paola Monserrate is a very independent woman who strives to generate income to cover certain expenses of her home. That is why, 15 years ago, she decided to start a small stationery store, offering varieties of articles for college and university students and articles for office use in general. Paola Monserrate sells in her living room, using display cabinets and shelves where her products are displayed to the public.

She will use this loan to stock her stationery story by buying notebooks, sheets, liners, folders and others. Her dreams are to be able to renew the display cases on her business to provide a better presentation.
