A loan of $1,000 helped purchase perfumes, crèmes, and deodorants.

Patricia Elizableth's story

Patricia is 28 years old and lives in Suburbio de Guayaquil. She sells products manufactured by Yambal (a company that offers women entrepreneurs the opportunity to start their own independent sales businesses). She is divorced and continues to work to support her two year old son.

Since she works alone in order to provide for her child, Patricia begins very early offering her products to neighbors and friends. She sells perfumes ranging from $20.00 to $75.00 per unit. One of her worries is leaving her son alone with her mother while she is away working.

This loan will be used to buy Yambal products such as perfumes, crèmes, and deodorants. In the future, Patricia wants to finish the construction of her house and provide good things for her son.
