Leydi Liliana's story

Leydi Liliana is 28 years old and married. She lives with her husband and son. She lives in Cantón Ventanas in the Province of Los Rios.

Her communal banking group is called El Sagrado Corazón (Sacred Heart). This bank is located on the corner of Ernesto Briones and Parroquia 10 de Noviembre, in the town of Cantón Ventanas. Her group is dedicated to commerce.

Mrs. Leydi dedicates herself to the business of selling Yambal brand cosmetics. That is, the selling of cosmetics by means of magazines and the giving of beauty advice. The money is for investing in Yambal cosmetics in order to promote them locally.

She does her purchasing in the city of Guayaquil via email. The loan helps her to increase production and improve the quality of her products. Leydi's dream is to have her own local store. She has faced challenges such as high prices and competition.

In her free time, she likes to do housekeeping in her home.
