Yuliana Maribel's story

Yuliana is 29 years old and lives in suburbs of Guayaquil. They have two children; age two, and age three months. As a result of her pregnancy, her sister gave her some party supplies to sell. When they ran out, she had to invest her savings to increase her income. They bought notebooks and more party supplies.

Little by little she began increasing her capital and rented a location to have more space to sell party supplies. She works from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. She sells painted dolls, notebooks, etc. She wants to use the money from this loan to buy more items in order to be able to offer a greater variety.

She would eventually like to open a chain of stores selling party supplies.
