Narcisa De Jesus
Narcisa, 50, has a small grocery store in the front part of her house. She lives in El Fortín, Guayaquil, an area noted for its unpaved streets and informal merchants.

Due to the lack of employment opportunities she used her savings to buy foodstuffs to sell because she had to support her children since she’s a single mother. Since then and to this date she works every day from 8am until 9pm. She sells rice by the pound, sugar, cooking oils, vegetables, etc.

To continue with her business and stock it better she needs to use the loan to buy rice, cooking oils and sugar.

In the future she’d like to finish building her house and stock her store better.
