A loan of $1,000 helped for sweets, beverages, groceries.

Jennifer Janina's story

Jennifer, 24, lives in an urban zone in El Guasmo, Guayaquil. Five years ago she became ill due to the hard work she had in the store, she almost dislocated her arm but her mother encouraged her to continue working in her store.

Gradually, as time went by she recovered and continued with her store. From then until now she has had improved income and has been able to stock it with more items. She works from 8am until 10pm every day.

However, in order to stock it even better still with sweets, beverages and groceries, she is asking for funds. In the future, she’d like to have a minimarket to insure her and her mother’s futures.
