Mildred Pamela's story

Sra. Mildred, age 32, lives in Guayaquil. She opened her store seven years ago with a loan from a relative because she wanted to establish her own business. Her sales gradually increased and now she has a mini-market.

Sra. Mildred begins her work every day at 6:00 A.M. She opens her business after she takes her children to school. With the help of God, she continues to make progress in her business day after day. Mildred is not married, but she is a single mother of three children who attend a state school.

With this loan, she will buy rice, sugar, canned goods, and basic staples. Her dream is to see all of her children finish university and become professionals so that all of her daily efforts do not go to waste.
