Rebeca's story

Rebeca, 31, lives in Primavera de Durán (an ecologically eroding periurban area on the outskirts of Guayaquil). She has a grocery store where she sells vegetables, canned goods, meats, etc. She has had the store since she separated from her husband in order to earn her own income. She started out buying vegetables. She has worked for a long time now to support her two children, who are 4 and 10 years of age, selling all sorts of foodstuffs. She is open for business from 6am until 10pm every day. She wants funding to increase her available stock buying beverages, dairy products and vegetables. In the future, she’d like to stock her store with still more variety of goods in order to provide a better future for her children.
