A loan of $1,100 helps to purchase fruit to make her juices, sugar, glasses, and more.


Valeria Yamileth's story

Valeria is single, 21 years old, and studies economics. She lives with her parents in Manta, a place which is known for its lovely beaches which bathe the coasts of this lovely place. The majority of the locals are very hardworking and work at the jobs of the sea.

Valeria is a woman who has had to seek alternatives to get ahead since her family is most important for her. For this, she has worked hard to provide her loved ones with better living conditions. It is for this reason that, with the help of her parents, she decided to undertake her business selling natural juices. Valeria has a cart which she places each day in a vulnerable area, allowing her to generate very good earnings with which she can get ahead.

She will invest this loan in the purchase of fruit to make her juices, sugar, glasses, and more. Her dream is to be a professional and that her business continues growing.
