A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a cooker, tables, and plates.

Maira Mariuxi's story

Maira lives in Guayaquil. She started her food business because she left her job. She started selling food in order to help with the household expenses. She currently works alone from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

The difficulty in her business is the crime in the area where she lives.

She is separated. She has two children, ages five and two. The older one goes to public school.

She wants to use the loan to buy a cooker, tables, and plates in order to be able to make more food.

Her dream is for her family to be healthy. She also dreams of her business growing and expanding with lunches and food in the evening.
