A loan of $650 helped to purchase notebooks and paper.


Judith Guadalupe's story

Judith was born in Echendia, but currently lives in Guayaquil with her family. She is 34 years old, and is married to Jhonny, who works as a salesman for the Pulido Costura SA company. She has two children. One is nine and goes to school, and the other is three and stays with her. She opened her stationery store nine years ago, because she became unemployed, and that was what pushed her to get started. She doesn't have a fixed schedule but she is always open Monday through Sunday from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm. During the rainy season she doesn't sell as much because the streets get damaged and vehicles can't reach her residence. She is going to use the loan to expand her business by purchasing notebooks, paper, and essential goods (rice, sugar, oil, grains). Her next goal is to expand her home and her business.
