A loan of $1,000 helped to buy building materials and supplies.

Clemencia Pilar's story

Clemencia, 44, lives in an urban zone in Las Orquídeas (so called because at its beginning there were many orchid flowers) in Guayaquil. She is married and her husband works manufacturing advertising fencing. They have two children who are 13 and 15 years old and attend public school. She is a private teacher at an educational institution.

She started some time ago working at an educational institution because as a licensed teacher she decided to open that type of business. She works Monday through Friday from 7am until 2pm with the help of three additional teachers.

With help from the loan she plans to buy building materials and supplies like cement, bricks and paint to build another educational institution in the future.
