A loan of $1,000 helped purchase equipment & materials.

Wendy Estefania's story

Wendy, age 23, works with her husband in a vulcanization shop where they repair tires for cars, bicycles, and other vehicles. She lives in Fortín de Guayaquil, a periurban area with dirt roads and hills.

Wendy began repairing tires and learned the business after her husband decided to open a repair shop. Her entire family engages in this business. They work every day from 7am to 9pm. After they wake up each day, Wendy takes her children to school before heading to the repair shop.

This loan will be used to buy materials and equipment for her business. In the future, Wendy wants to open another business and have stable finances.
