Paola Cecilia's story

Paola is 21 years old, she lives in an urban zone of "las Orquídeas de Guayaquil. She used to live in the mountain range of el Ecuador with her family, there "ornado de chancho", pig with cooked corn and onion (typical dish) is very common, but the lack of opportunities made her move to Guayaquil to live with her family.

Living in Guayaquil she started to sell "ornado de chancho" again from her house, and little by little her capital increased and now she has a small stand outside her house. She works with the support of her mother from very early on.

In order for her customers to be more comfortable, with the loan she wants to buy tables and chairs for ther business. In the future she wishes to set up a pig farm.
