Piedad Amabilia's story

Piedad was born in Guayaquil and is 52 years of age. Ten years ago (in 2003), she began working for a distribution company that sells dairy products. With a loan she received from a relative, Piedad decided to establish her own business of selling food and groceries. Her business slowly grew over time. At the moment, she has a store that is well-known in the area where she lives. Piedad begins her work at 6:30 A.M. She goes to the market to buy fresh products that she will sell in her store. Piedad has not encountered any difficulties with her business and with the help of God she steadily makes progress day after day. She is single and all three of her children are grown and live independently.


With this loan, Piedad wants to buy rice, sugar, grains, canned goods, and other items. In the future, she would like to buy a truck so that she can buy her products with greater ease.
