Pilar Jannet
Pilar lives with her children in Paraíso de Guayaquil (city outskirts with dirt roads and houses in the mountains). She has a small business producing event flyers and invitations.

She works at a print shop making cards and invitations to parties, events and other occasions. But in order to have extra money, since she is a single mother with two children, she began creating hand-made cards and invitations in her spare time. She works in the morning and afternoon. One of the challenges that she faces includes health complications, which make it difficult to be 100% active.

With this loan, Pilar intends to buy stationary to make more cards. In the future, she wants to have her own stationary store.
