Maria Teresa's story

María is 23 years old and lives in the periurban area of Orquídeas de Guayaquil. She sells products manufactured by Yanbal, a company that offers women entrepreneurs the opportunity to start their own independent sales businesses. Even though María is divorced, she continues working for her children who are 7 and 6 years of age.

Working alone, she wakes up very early to begin offering products to her neighbors and friends. María sells perfumes, crèmes, and deodorants. With this loan, she wants to buy Yanbal products such as perfumes, crèmes, and deodorants. In the future she wants to finish the construction of her house, become a Yanbal director, and have her own shop.
