Marianela Katherine
Marianela is a 37 year old woman who is an entrepreneur and follower of her ideals. She lives in Portoviejo with her parents where she manages a grocery store. She began her business four years ago with money she borrowed to be able to finance the opening of her business. She attends it from 6 in the morning until 7 at night since it is in her house where her shop is located. This gives her an advantage to not have to transport herself at late hours which is dangerous. The business has given Marianela a lot of satisfaction since she is independent and, above all, she has been able to help her parents with home expenses. With the loan that she is requesting, Marianela wishes to buy products to sell like rice, sugar, bran, canned goods, flour, etc. In the future, she would like to be able to have a family and have a business that is better stocked to offer variety to her customers.
