A loan of $1,000 helped fish, vegetables.


Birma Pilar's story

Birma S. is 52 years old and has worked all of her life selling encebollado (a traditional dish from Ecuador made with yucca and fish) and sausage soup.

She works every day and has a large clientele, so it isn’t hard for her to sell her food. She is married and her husband has a truck which he uses for transport. She helps him a lot with his work. Birma has three children but they are already married.

With the loan, she will buy fish, yucca and sodas to make more encebollado dishes.
