A loan of $2,100 helped to buy flatware sets, blenders, and washing machines to sell.


Yolanda Raquel's story

Sra. Yolanda, age 29, lives in Guayaquil. She started a business that involves buying personal use products. Over time, she began generating more income and now she has started to invest more into her business.


At the moment, she sells household goods with her sister. They work every day from 1:00 in the afternoon until 8:00 in the evening. The challenge she faces is dealing with the illness of her three-year-old son. Yolanda is a single woman with two children, ages 9 and 3. She strives to provide the best for her children since she alone must be both father and mother to them.


Yolanda requests a loan so that she can buy more household goods such as flatware sets, blenders, and washing machines. Her dreams include building a two-story house, buying an automobile, and growing her business. She also hopes to have more income.
