A loan of $1,575 helped to purchase a machine for her tire repair shop.


Zoila Victoria's story

Zoila is a 30-year-old single mother who lives in Duran. She was born in Guayaquil, but upon getting engaged, she moved to Duran. When her husband left her, life got more difficult as she became a single mother; however, this did not keep her away from reaching her goals. She got her start in the tire repair business because her sister sold the shop to her. As a woman, she has had to work hard in a predominantly male field. Nevertheless, her business has prospered, and she now has someone working for her. Being a single mother with an underage son, her biggest problem is crime, but thank God she has not had any setbacks. She will use this loan to purchase a hydraulic machine that will be used in her tire repair shop. Her next goal is to finish building her house.
