Ingrid Agne's story

Ingrid lives in the canton of Playas in Guayas Province. She is 46 years old and single. Her two children do not live with her since they are grown and independent. Ten years ago, Ingrid was not able to find a stable job, so she decided to open her own business. Since she knew how to cook, Ingrid opened a diner in her home where she currently sells food.

The photo shows that she has an excellent clientele. Ingrid is the woman wearing a white blouse and black skirt. One can also see that she is doing well since was able to hire an assistant. They work together Monday through Friday from 6:00 A.M to 9:00 P.M.

With this loan, Ingrid will buy rice and oil. She will also make repairs to her establishment. Her future goal is to buy a truck so that she can deliver food to far-off places. She also hopes that her diner will become a well-known restaurant that serves traditional Ecuadorian food.
