Diana Ninibeth's story

Diana is of Venezuelan nationality. She emigrated to Ecuador due to the socio-economic crisis in her country.

Three years ago, she came to the city of Ibarra, with great desire to get ahead. Upon coming to that city, she began to sell empanadas as a street vendor, using a small cart. Thanks to her dedication and daily effort, she managed to start a shop, selling traditional Venezuelan food. This permitted her to have increased customer demand, and so she requests a loan to acquire a display case to exhibit and sell the foods that she prepares. This loan will give her the opportunity to improve service to her customers and to increase her sales.

Diana is a brave and enterprising woman who wants to be an example to her compatriots of overcoming. She is grateful for your support; you will help her to better herself and to get ahead.
