Clara Aurora's story

Clara is 53, and lives in Duran. Clara sells fritada from a food cart (fritada is a traditional Ecuadorian dish whose main ingredient is fried pork). She started her business when her husband abandoned her and her children.

Thanks to it, she was able to provide education and security. Now her children are adults and independent. Currently she is in another relationship, and she carries out sales with this person. She doesn't have fixed hours, as she travels to various points of the city.

Clara tells us that she worries about her health, as the heat produced in the preparation of the fritada causes her inflammation that can be very painful.

With the loan she will buy meat, soft drinks and vegetables, for preparing fritada. Her dream is to be able to rent a permanent location for her business.
