Anonymous's story

This client lives in Guayaquil. She says that she began her business of selling cosmetics, perfumes, and crèmes three years ago so that she could help with the household expenses.

The borrower begins her duties at 8:00 A.M. and finishes at 4:00 P.M. after a hard day of work. She spends the entire time selling cosmetics. There have not been any major problems with her business, but the borrower indicates that one of her children suffers from severe cerebral palsy. Therefore, she takes on a large responsibility of taking care of her son by herself, which requires a great demand on her time. The borrower is separated from her husband. She has three children and two of them attend a state school.

With this loan, the borrower will buy perfumes, crèmes, and cosmetics. Her dream is to open a bazaar so that she will have a better place to sell her products. She also wants to have a house of her own, but most of all, she hopes that all of her son’s treatment will improve his health greatly.
