Guayaquil (Fortin), Ecuador / General Store

A loan of $1,000 helped purchase rice, sugar, and snacks for her shop.


Jazmin Belgica's story

Jazmín is 22 years old, an enterprising young woman who started working as an employee in a boutique downtown, until her father received a loan that enabled him to open a small shop that has been slowly growing.

She currently works every day in her parents' shop, starting at 6 a.m. The biggest problem for the business is the amount of crime in the neighborhood, since the police don't patrol very often. She intends to use this loan to purchase rice, sugar, and snacks to increase sales in the store. Her greatest wish for the future is to one day build a house, set up a stationery shop, and see her son complete his studies.
