A loan of $800 helped rice, canned goods and sugar.


Alexi Abigail's story

Alexis, 26, lives in Paraíso de Guayaquil (a suburban area with dirt roads and eroding hills). Her house is made of cane and she has a grocery store in front part of her house. Little by little, making an effort, she was able to have her own shop, buying rice and sugar, in order to help her parents with household expenses. Sometimes her parents help her, working from early until sunset. To stock her shop, she needs a loan to buy rice, canned goods, and sugar. In the future she wants to restock her store to get more profits and thereby help help her parents more with expenses.
