A loan of $1,075 helped to buy construction materials for building a store.

Flor Maria's story

Flor lives in Guayaquil and is 62 years old. She started her business five years ago because she needed to sustain her household, but was not earning an income. For this reason, she began investing in the sale of sodas.

One obstacle is that she does not have a place for her merchandise. Since her business is located in her home, this proves to be a bit difficult. Flor is not married and does not have any children. She works alone without having to support anyone. As a result, she can earn more income to pay for her household expenses.

With this loan, Flor will buy construction materials so that she can have a shop where she can display products, such as beverages and food items, to her customers. In the end, she will have more income and more customers.
