Anonymous's story

This client lives in Guayaquil. She’s 38-years-old. She started her business about three years ago selling to friends because she had to be both father and mother to her children because she’s a widow. However, with God’s help doors opened for her and she was able to increase her business; she enjoys what she does. Her work is selling foam items and cushions; she works alone every day and all the time. The difficulty she has is her illness that prevents her from working for a firm and this is why she prefers to be an independent person with a business of her own. She’s a widow and has two children (one boy & one girl) attending public school. Her children are the reason she strives to move forward. (Her is in the picture and helps her with the business)

She wants to use the loan to buy foam items and cushions. Her dream is to continue moving ahead with her children and to leave something behind so her children can have what they need; she also would like to have a space at home where she can display her wares and employ others who have the same illness she has so that they can continue forward above all with God’s help.
