Jessica Maurixi's story

Sra. Jessica lives in Guayaquil and is 30 years of age. Prior to starting her business, she underwent training by taking a technical course. She later began selling her products to her friends. Jessica enjoys being creative and innovative in her work.

She works alone from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Her main difficulties are dealing with crime and the high cost of materials that she uses in producing her merchandise. Jessica is not married and has no children. She only has herself to support, so she strives each day to get ahead.

Jessica will use her loan to buy craft foam. She dreams of having a family with two children and a finished house. In addition, she wants to have a retail shop where she can sell her goods and provide jobs to people who need them.
