Rosa Narcisa's story

Rosa lives in Paraíso de la Flor where she has an internet cafe. She is 42 years old and is married to Carlos, a Metrovia driver, which is a massive urban transport system in Guayaquil. She has 5 children who are in public schools. Rosa tell us that she started her business when she bought a computer for her chilrden to use, since in her there was no place to rent one. From there she began to see the opportunity to set up a locale in the living room of her house. So she decided to buy another computer and opened the internet cafe. She saw inmediate results and now has 5 computers, a scanner and a copier. She tends the store with her son. He works mornings and she works afternoons. She tells us that right now her biggest problem is crime and the wireless connection, which despite everything is very low. With the loan she hopes to buy more computers to grow her business with which she will increase her income and fix up her home.
