A loan of $1,100 helped to buy meats, canned goods, vegetables and plastic containers.


Virginia Stefany's story

Virginia, 22, lives in Guayaquil. She decided to start a fast-food business because her husband abandoned her leaving her alone with a small son. This is why she strives daily at present to get ahead with her little boy. She’s single and her only help comes from God. She earns very little with this business to cover her son’s food costs and her household expenses which is why she needs the loan to buy foodstuffs to increase the number of dishes she sells. She wants to use the loan to buy meats, canned goods, vegetables and plastic containers. In future, she’d like to increase her business and continue striving because she wants to provide her son with a good education.
