A loan of $1,000 helped to buy assorted clothing.

Jessica Patricia's story

Jessica, 25, lives in an urban zone in Las Orquídeas (so called because in the beginning there were many orchids there) in Guayaquil. She is a young entrepreneur who sells clothes.

She started some time ago thanks to her mother who also sold clothes but one day told her to go into this activity because it’s to her advantage to do so because it will generate more income for her university studies. She works every day with her sister selling her clothing merchandise.

With help from the loan she wants to buy more merchandise like assorted clothes for her respective sales. In the future, she’d like to stay in business to help her siblings economically.
