A loan of $1,000 helped purchase two computers.

Rosado Karina's story

Karina is 39 years old and lives in a periurban area along the Perimetral Highway in Guayaquil. Eight years ago, she used her savings to install telephone booths in her house so that she could provide calling services to her neighbors. With her earnings, she was able to gradually increase her business.

Karina has also established a small cybercafé in her home next to the phone booths so that she could provide better service to her customers. She also sells single use and rechargeable calling cards. With her loan, Karina wants to buy two computers for her cybercafé. One of her goals is to have a chain of cybercafés throughout Guayaquil.
