Sebastiana Francisca's story

Sebastiana lives in the Orquídeas neighborhood of Guayaquil. She is 34 years old, single, and has a 16 year-old son. Upon separating from her ex-partner, she decided to look for work so that she could get ahead and pay for her son's education. As no one was giving her an opportunity to work for a company, she decided to gather together some money to open her own fast food business. Her sales grew gradually until she had the customers she needed. Sebastiana works each day, and her son helps her. She works starting in the morning. With this loan, she will buy food products, such as vegetables and other items. Her goals are to have a big restaurant and to improve her house.
