Mareva Esperanza's story

Sra. Mareva is 36 years old and lives in Orquídeas (Guayaquil). With some money she received, Mareva opened a bazaar so that she could generate household income.


She works from home, starting in the morning and continuing into the night. The difficulty she faces in her business is dealing with the existing competition in her neighborhood. Mareva is not married and has an eight-year-old son (who appears with her in the photo). He attends a private school, so Mareva works very hard so that he can have a good education.


She will use this loan to buy merchandise for her bazaar such as notebooks, pens, pencils, and other items. In the future, she would like to expand her bazaar even more and acquire more customers.
