Leopoldina Primitiva
Leopoldina is 55 years old and lives in an urban area of Suburbio de Guayaquil. She is separated and has a 12 year-old son who is studying at the Naval Academy. Her business is selling hens, pigs, and clothes through catalogs.

Leopoldina started out raising hens at home and then selling them. In this way, she gradually increased her capital and, after a while, she started selling pigs and also clothes through catalogs. Leopoldina is affected in her business by crime since it is very common in her neighborhood. With the help of this loan, she would like to buy more hens, pigs and clothes.
