A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase clothing and office supplies.

Amada Perpetua's story

Amada is 53 years old and she has an office supply store from where she also sells clothing. She lives with her husband and their three children El Fortin, in Guayaquil (a mountainous suburban region with unpaved roads).

Three years ago she started purchasing merchandise to sell to her acquaintances and friends and seeing that sales were good she decided to set up a store. She sells clothing from jer store but given the demand she also started to carry paper, notebooks, pens etc. She works from 6:15am to 9pm. She sells pens, paper, clothing, etc.

She will use this loan to purchase blouses, slacks, and office supplies to stock her business. In the future she wants to have a well-stocked business and to stabilize her finances.
