A loan helped to buy slippers and sheets.

Yailene Cecibel's story

Yailene is 19 years old. She is in a common law marriage and has one two-year-old daughter. Her husband is an operator. They live in a relative's house in Manta, a charming city whose residents are very goodhearted.

Yailene is a very enterprising woman who strives everyday to help with the household expenses. That is why she has had a business for 3 years selling slippers and sheets. She used to sell as a street vendor but now she is selling from her home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Her business went down due to biosafety reasons, and her income was drastically reduced. That is why she is no asking for a new loan to reactivate her business again.

She will invest this loan in buying slippers and sheets. Her dream is for her business to progress again and to improve her finances.
