Marcia Maritza's story

Marcia Maritza is thirty years old, single, and has one child. She lives with her mother, her sister, and her five year old son in the Ventanas canton in the Los Ríos province. The members of the Primero de mayo Communal Bank, located in the Primero de mayo neighborhood of the Ventanas canton in the Los Ríos province, are devoted to commercial enterprises. Marcia has been selling jewelry for the past year. She purchases jewelry in Guayaquil and distributes it in the Ventanas canton. She is requesting the loan to purchase merchandise and increase and improve her revenue. Her dream is to have and to run her own business as a majority partner. The daily challenges she faces are her competition. In her free time, she likes to take walks with her son or visit with her family.
