Anonymous's story

This client lives in Guayaquil. She is 56 years old and says that her brother started a restaurant, but he was not able to continue the business when his health started to deteriorate. The borrower got into the food business when she took over the restaurant. With her brother’s supervision, the business has done well. They have been able to acquire many customers and now have become well-known for the exquisite flavor of their food.


The borrower manages the restaurant with her brother. She says that her brother is an HIV patient. When his health is in decline, she says that they are not able to manage the restaurant. No one is available to cook, so therefore they lose customers and money. The borrower is not married and has no children.


With this loan, she will buy supplies such as basic grains, vegetables, fruits, and other items so that she can increase the number of dishes offered. Her dreams include continuing with her life, being with her family, expanding the business, acquiring more customers, and having a better quality of life.
