Maira Sabrina
Maira is 31 years old and is unmarried with 3 children. In the city where she was born, Manta, Maira sells clothes which began as being a street vendor many years ago. She chose this trade as there are few opportunities to obtain employment and it was thanks to her sales that she was able to acquire a shop in the local market so that she doesn't need to make runs. She services the store alone and when there is a holiday she contracts an assistance, paying them hourly wages. In her shop she offers blouses, shirts, t-shirts, jeans, and sweats and that is what most customers request. One of the major concerns is the crime, as at times there are many people and it is crowded and full in the shop and she loses visibility. It is at this moment that thieves take the opportunity to steal. She hopes to obtain the loan so that she can purchase more merchandise to sell, hoping to in the future grow until she can open a branch in another city.

Maira tiene 31 años de estado civil soltera , tiene 3 hijos . Maira tiene en su ciudad natal Manta una venta de ropa la cual empezó de manera ambulante hace varios años. Escogió esta actividad debido a las pocas oportunidades que se le presentaron para conseguir empleo y fue gracias a sus ventas que logro adquirir un local en el mercado municipal por lo que ya no necesita hacer recorridos. La atención la realiza solo y cuando hay feriado contrata a un ayudante pagando sus servicios por hora. En su local oferta blusas, camisas, camisetas, jeans, calentadores ya que es lo que más solicitan sus clientes. Una de sus mayores preocupaciones es la delincuencia ya que a veces hay mucha gente y se aglomeran lo que llena el local y pierde visión, es en ese momento que los ladrones aprovechan para robar. Espera obtener el crédito ya que desea comprar más mercadería para la venta esperando a futuro crecer hasta conseguir abrir una sucursal en otra ciudad.
