A loan of $1,575 helped to buy bolts, keys, filters and car accessories.

Clemencia Cecilia's story

Clemencia has requested a loan to purchase spare car parts, bolts, keys, filters, and car accessories because these are the products she offers in her store. She and her husband started it together after he left the passenger transportation cooperative at which he worked, and using the settlement he got and a bit of money they had saved they opened the business.

It was a good option since he knows about cars and spare parts. Now it's doing well despite competition. Clemencia focuses more of her attention on the public and dealing with suppliers. She opens the store every day Monday through Saturday from 8 in the morning until 6 at night.

Clemencia's dream for the future is to be able to open a restaurant in downtown Quevedo. This is underway because she wants to start a new business that's independent of her husband's.
