Dennys Vanessa's story

Dennys lives in Portoviejo. She is 22 years old and single. She tells us that she really likes her city because of how close the beaches that lots of tourists visit are.

She also tells us that it is difficult to find work. That is why a lot of people leave the city to look for better living conditions.

She finished her education and started to work as a domestic employee. When she was let go she started to sell products by catalogs. She works alone, offering her products at any time of the day.

She tells us that there is not much delinquency in her neighborhood. However, winter is a difficult time because the streets where she lives are not paved, and she cannot make her door-to-door sales.

She will use the loan to buy perfume, make-up, and a display case to display her products.

Her next goal is to increase her sales in order to have more income and finish her nursing degree.
