A loan of $1,200 helped purchase household chemicals.

Susy Eva's story

Susy is 23 years old and lives in Suburbio de Guayaquil (an urban area where most of the residents are informal merchants). She sells household chemical products such as shampoos, disinfectants, and other items.

She started her business several years ago after one of her friends taught her how to prepare the products. Since then she has continued the chemical business that the two of them started. Susy works from 8am to 4pm every day. She makes shampoos, disinfectants, and air fresheners and packages them in plastic containers.

Susy wants to use her loan to buy more chemicals for making her products. In the future, she wants to have her own distribution center and finish the construction of her house.
