Narcisa Monserrate
Narcisa sells products produced by Yanbal, a company that offers women entrepreneurs a means of making a living independently. She lives with her husband in Primavera de Duran, a degraded area on the outskirts of Guayaquil.

She started selling Yanbal products to pay for her son's schooling. She has steadily expanded her customer base as she gets out early in the morning to sell her wares, which include very affordable personal care products. She would like to acquire a stock of clothes in order to offer a greater range of products to her customers.

With the loan, she will buy Yanbal products, such as perfumes, creams and clothing. In the future, she would like to sell other types of products and expand sales to other areas.
