A loan of $1,000 helped for clothing and sandals.


Brigida Del Jesus's story

Brígida, 39, sells clothes in a market. She’s a single mother of two children who are 16 and 4 years of age. She lives with them in a house located along Guayaquil’s beltway, an area surrounded by an estuary.

She started selling clothes nine years ago when the Municipal Market opened and they gave her a stall to sell clothes. She is currently open for business from 8am until 4pm every day selling pants, shirts, underwear and slippers at very accessible prices. She continues to work to support her two children who are 16 and 4 years of age since she’s a single mother.

She will use the requested loan to buy to buy clothes and sandals to stock her store with clothes. In the future she wants to enlarge the business and make improvements to her home so that her children can be more comfortable.
