Olivia Briselda's story

Olivia lives in Fortín, an area in the North of the city of Guayaquil. She is 34 years old, married and has two children, the oldest of whom is 16 and goes to a local high school and the youngest is 9 years old and goes to school as well. Her husband is a taxi driver. Olivia began her business 12 years ago selling bazaar items and stationery and afterwards she began to include at her stand all kinds of different products to form a store. She now sells everything from sodas to general supplies. Currently, she is also trying to incorporate natural products. With the loan, Olivia wants to purchase more general supplies, bazaar items and medicinal products. Her goal is to have a great mini-mart in the future since this has been her dream since she was very young and thanks to the help from God and the communal bank D-MIRO, she will be able to achieve it.
