A loan of $1,000 helped purchase drinks, rice, and chicken.


Glenda Beatriz's story

Glenda, age 48, has a restaurant where she sells roasted chicken for $1.50 per plate. She lives with her two children in a periurban area with all the basic services. This place is located along the Perimetral Highway of Guayaquil and surrounded by a marsh.


She started her restaurant by selling lunches. When she needed to generate more income, Glenda bought an oven so that she could sell roasted chickens. She currently works every day from 7am to dusk selling rice with mixed vegetables and chicken, whole roasted chickens with plantains, and salads. Each dish ranges from $1.50 to $2.50 each based on the type of food that is served.


Glenda wants to use this loan to buy drinks, rice, and chicken to increase her sales volume. In the future, she wants to finish the construction of her house and introduce new dishes.
