Lisstte Gisela
Lissette is a graduate. She is 32 and married to Walther. She lives with her family in Guayaquil in the sector of Suburbio. Her husband has been working for 11 years as auditor for the group KFC. Their children are aged 5, 7 and 11 and study at school.

Two years ago she learnt how to sew because she liked it. Together with her husband she decided to turn this into her profession. She carries out this work alone in her home. If she has a lot of work she hires another person to help her. She doesn't have a fixed timetable but she prefers this as she is at home and can look after her children without any problems. Her biggest worry is that either she or her children get sick and that she wouldn't be able to sew, as this helps towards the household finances.

She will use this loan to buy sewing materials such as fabrics, threads and a sewing machine. Over the next few years she would like to open a business where she can display the articles she makes.
