Anonymous's story

This borrower lives in Guayaquil. She started out a number of years ago selling cosmetics, and later she started to sell small household items. Thanks to God the business has done well, and she enjoys her work.

She will use this loan to buy merchandise at wholesale which she will sell with her husband. They work from 7am until 9pm. They sell a variety of items such as toasters, blenders and irons.

One difficulty she faces with her business is the fear that she will be robbed, because there are a lot of thieves in her area. Another challenge is her illness, because she is a patient living with HIV/AIDs. She is married and her husband, in addition to helping with her sales, also works as a master electrician. They have a son who is 9 years old and who attends a public school.

With this loan, she will buy kitchen appliances such as toasters, blenders, irons, etc. Her dream is to be able to enjoy her family and to have a big store where she could sell more products and also give work to more people.
