A loan of $1,575 helped to fix up her store and buy rice, sugar, flour and display cases.

Enma Analuz's story

Enma lives in Fortín, in the northern zone of the city of Guayaquil. She is 44 years old, divorced and has three grown children who are independent. When she separated from her ex-husband, she made the decision to look for work. Because nobody would give her the opportunity to work at a company, she then thought to open her own store. She started to save money and a while later, Enma's dream became a reality when she opened her own general store. Currently, she works in her store every day from 8 in the morning until 10 at night. With this loan, she will fix up her store and buy rice, sugar, flour, display cases, etc. Her goal is to have a mini market that is known throughout the city for satisfying its customers' needs.
