Vilma Susana's story

Vilma lives in Guayaquil. She opened her store at the time she moved to a new house since she wanted her business to be in the same location. Vilma sells basic necessities in her store such as canned goods, grains, and sweets. She works with the help of her husband and son. Her difficulties include dealing with the competition from other stores. Vilma is married and her husband works occasionally as a bricklayer. They have grown children.

With this loan, Vilma will buy rice, sugar, and a few shelves. Her dream is to grow her store and to become a distributor.
