A loan of $1,200 helped chlorine, desinfectant.


Luisa Maria's story

Luisa, 52 years old, makes cleaning products. She lives in Guasmo de Guayaquil, an urban zone where most of the people work as street vendors. She started manufacturing chlorine and detergent to help with the family's expenses. Her husband works with her and their products bear the "Super Limpiecito" ("squeaky clean") brand. They work from very early in the morning until 5pm and sell by the gallon and by the liter. She wants to purchase chemicals to manufacture the chlorine and detergent with the loan. In the future, she wants to fix and improve her house.
