A loan of $800 helped to buy printers and CD players.


Paola Gisella's story

21-year old Paola runs a computer-repair and graphic design business. She lives in the suburb of Guayaquil. She started out with a computer in her house offering maintenance and doing graphic design. However, she had so many customers that she had to move house so she could have better premises for the business. Over time she got even more customers so that now she has her own advertising business and has hired two people to help with graphic design. Paola wants to see her business become one of the most well-known, so she is seeking a loan to buy CD players and printers for the advertising business. As well as her goal to see the business succeed, she wants to help her parents financially.
