A loan of $600 helped to buy clothing and shoes.

Maria Cecilia's story

María is 34 years old and sells clothing and shoes in different parts of Paraíso (in the peri-urban areas where there are dirt roads and houses in the mountains).

She lives with her husband and two children in Paraíso in Guayaquil. María is a hard worker who has always enjoyed having her own money. She began selling clothing through door-to-door sales and now works different shifts so she can attend to her children. Since it is now the rainy season it is hard for her to get out into the streets.

She would like to continue working and wants to use the loan to buy clothing and shoes in order to provide more variety to her customers. Her plans for the future include growing her business and making home improvements.
