A loan of $700 helped for rice and beverages.

Janina Elizabeth's story

Janima, 23, lives in Fortín de Guayaquil (a hilly periurban area with unpaved streets). She has a grocery store in her home.

She started out with just a display case selling candy and beverages. Gradually she stocked foodstuffs. She now has a small stocked store that she operates out of one of her home’s windows; she sells candy, beverages and grains.

She wants to use the loan to buy rice, beverages and vegetables to improve and better stock her store. In the future she’d like her store to be larger and better stocked.
