A loan of $800 helped to buy antibiotics and vitamins.

Anatolia Esther's story

Anatolia is 34 years old. She has a small pharmacy where she sells Apronax, Brocotocil, Nemulabo, etc. She lives with her four children in an urban area which is called Orquídeas because when it was discovered they found many flowers there and there is currently a park of these flowers there.

Anatolia chose this business so that she could help her husband with their family expenses and have a secure environment for their children. With a little bit of capital which she had, she started to buy medicines which are very common in Ecuador such as Broncotocil, painkillers, vitamins, etc. She currently works from 8.00am every day selling medicines, vitamins, saline solution and drinks.

Anatolia would like to use her loan to buy medicines such as Meloxicar, Brocotocil, Nemulabo, expectorant, etc. In the future, she would like to own another pharmacy and finish building her home.
