A loan of $850 helped to buy detergents and washing machines, and to service the washing machines she has already.

Ana Pastora's story

Ana lives in the city of Duran, which is in the Guayas province. She is married and has 2 children who are studying at a nearby public school. She had 2 washing machines in her house and one day a neighbour asked if she could rent one of them. Ana realised that she could have a business and she bought 3 more washing machines. Now she rents out her washing machines. The business is growing every day. Ana's dream is have her own premises and to convert it into a first class laundry. With this loan she will buy detergents and washing machines and service the washing machines she already has, etc.
