Anonymous's story

The client lives in Guayaquil. She has always had a life full of many business activities, and selling food is one of them. She started three years ago. She works alone, because she is not able to leave the house.

This is because she has a special child who has a physical disability. Her difficulty is her son’s illness. It makes his whole body swell.

She is separated from her husband. She has three children; two of them are adults and already married. The son who suffers from the syndrome is ten years old.

She plans to use the loan to buy legumes, grains, and vegetables. This way she will improve her income and be able to give her child a better life.

Her dream is to have a restaurant because her food sales now are informal. Regarding her family, she hopes that her son’s health improves.
