Jovanna Germania
Jovanna sells chickens ready to cook. She lives with her two daughters, 15 and 12 years old, in a periurban area with all of the basic utilities. It is located in the Perimetral de Guayaquil, an area surrounded by a marsh.

Nine months ago, the father of her daughters abandoned her and she had to take responsibility of the household expenses. This is why she decided to invest her savings in chickens to sell them at a price where she can earn money. She buys them very economically at a poultry farm and sells them to her neighbors and acquaintances in the area. She still does not have a place for her business, which is why she uses the door of her house to deal with the chickens that they request.

With the loan, she wants to purchase cement and zinc to fix her house because it is not well-built. In the future she wants to have her house fixed for her children.
