A loan of $1,000 helped for clothes.

Mariana Fanny's story

Marina, 57, has a small stand in the front of her house where she sells items, products and groceries. She lives in an urban zone in Guayaquil, called Suburbio, notable because most of its residents are merchants.

To support her family she devised ways to sell all kinds of items, groceries and personal use items over the last few years. Selling products and items from the stand she set up in her home she has managed to expand the business selling Yanbal and Esika products. Yanbal are personal use products and Esika is a catalogue clothing firm.

So that her business can continue producing income she wants to use the loan to buy Esika clothes so that her customers will have a wider variety available for purchase. In the future she’d like to increase her merchandise and have merchandise in stock.
