A loan of $1,000 helped milk, meat, and bones.


Eulalia Maria's story

Eulalia, age 57, lives in the Guasmo of Guayaquil (an urban area where the majority of its inhabitants sell merchandise informally, not in stores). She has a grocery store. She started working when one of her children had a financial crisis. She had to take charge of the family expenses. Since that time she has been able to have a small store in the back part of her house. She works until nightfall. In order to be able to continue with her store, she wants to use the loan to buy milk, meat, and eggs to stock her store more. In the future she wants her store to be better stocked and to have good health to continue working.
