Anonymous's story

This borrower lives in Guayaquil and manages a store she opened a few years ago. She gradually was able to stock her business and has been able to help her family get ahead. The borrower works alone in her store, which opens at 8:00 A.M. and closes at 11:00 P.M.

Her difficulty with her business is that her neighborhood experiences a lot of crime. She must also deal with her health, since she is not able to work on a normal basis. The borrower is a patient who lives with HIV/AIDS. She is not married and has a child who is one year and eight months old.

With this loan, the borrower will purchase rice, sugar, beverages, and canned goods. Her dream is to live with her family in a house of her own. She would also like to acquire a vehicle and have a well-stocked store so that she can provide her family with a better quality of life.
