Janneth is a member of the Santa Rosa de Agua Clara rural loan group, which is located 2 hours away from Chillanes canton. There are 15 members of the group, and most of them have small businesses. Janneth’s business consists of a small general store with phone booths. She purchases her products in Guayaquil and Bucay and then sells them in Santa Rosa de Agua Clara. Janneth is asking for a loan so that she can increase her business. Her goal is to enlarge her business or to have a small company. The biggest challenge she faces in her business is competition, while the biggest challenge in her family right now is health issues. Therefore, her family is devoutly Catholic and very close.
