Julia Jennifer's story

Julia, age 25, lives in an urban area in the Orquídeas section of Guayaquil. (Las Orquídeas means "The Orchids", so called because it originally had many orchid flowers). She is single and has 2 small children who are not yet in school. She has a small stationery store. She started with a family business until one day, with a small amount of capital, she started her own business and opened a stationery store. She works alone in her stationery store every day, selling clothing and stationery items such as notebooks, sheets of paper, etc. With the help of the loan, she wants to invest in clothing items for the stationery store and various things for her to sell and increase her profits. She wants to grow her business greatly and so create economic growth to support her children.
