Grecia Irlanda's story

Grecia is 54 years old. She was born in Santa Elena, a canton in Guayaquil. Grecia is a single mother of two grown children. Nine years ago, she began her small stationary business to support her children and send them to school. Her daughter now works with her Monday through Sunday, from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

This will be her second loan, which she will use to buy notebooks, poster board, pencils, and other school supplies. Her goal over the next five year is to improve her family's quality of life.
