A loan of $700 helped purchase of perfumes, creams, shampoo.


Mayra Soray's story

Mayra, 41 years old, lives in the Guayaquil Perimeter (outer-suburban zone, at its outskirts is the salty estuary). She sells Yambal products (a company that offers enterprising women to start up their own independent sales).

She began working just to be able to help with household expenses, as her husband only has contract work and does not have much income. She has worked for the past five years, from early on offering the products to her neighbours and friends, selling perfumes, creams, deodorants, clothing.

With the loan, she wants to purchase Yambal products such as perfumes, creams, deodorants. In the future, she would like to finish construction on her home.
