A loan of $800 helped to buy stationery, notebooks, school supplies, and sewing materials.


Anonymous's story

This client is 60 years old and lives in Guayaquil (Isla Trinitaria). She began selling headbands and bows outside of a school, but when she learned how to sew, she established a workshop and a small bazaar so that she could help her family with the expenses.


The borrower works from 9:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. She works in her shop and manages the bazaar by herself. The difficulties she faces with her business include having to deal with her health situation. On a few occasions, she is not able to sew, so she only looks after the bazaar. She does not have a husband or any children.


With this loan, the borrower will buy materials for her sewing workshop and merchandise for her bazaar such as stationery, notebooks, and school supplies. Her dreams for the future include being healthy, providing a better life for her family, and having a more comfortable house so that she can run her businesses.
