A loan of $900 helped to buy shirts, balloons and squirt guns.


Anonymous's story

This client lives in Guayaquil; she’s 37-years-old. She started her business selling Yanbal products and then started to sell clothes. Analyzing the marketplace a bit she decided to sell seasonal goods because that generates more income. She likes selling and relating to people. She works alone starting at 10 in the morning and ending at 8 at night. Her business is seasonal goods sales. Her challenges are the illness she has which sometimes keeps her from being able to work; the illness she has is PVVS (patient living with HIV) and crime. She’s single and has a ten-year-old daughter attending public school.

She wants to use the loan to buy shirts and squirt guns for carnival since the beach season has begun. Her dream is that her health improves and that God gives her the opportunity to continue living and sharing with her daughter. She’d also like to have her own house and to have a chain of seasonal goods shops to employ other people in the same situation as her.
