A loan of $650 helped to buy tires and a horn for her car.


Fresia Editha's story

Fresia lives in an area of Guayaquil called “las Orquídeas”. She is 42 years old and is divorced. She has one young son who attends a public school in the area. She invested her saved money in the purchase of a car and now she is a taxi driver. Fresia gets up to work at 5:00a.m. and finishes her workday at 9:00p.m.

Her goal is to buy two more cars and thus be able to give work to people who don’t have it and to give her son a better life. With the loan Fresia will buy tires and a horn for the car, etc.
