A loan of $1,425 helped to buy canned goods, sweets, grains, and candy, etc.

Amada Maria's story

Amada lives in Guayquil. She started out selling ‘bolos’ [frozen fruit treats] at her house. Her sales were improving little by little until she started to invest money in foodstuffs. Her goal was to have a store. Little by little she was getting a store. She now has a store where she sells drinks, grains, and canned goods, etc.

The difficulty in her work is that at times she gets sick as she is now 60 years old.

She is married, and her husband sells fruit. She does not have any minor children; her grown children have a business.

She wants to use the loan to invest in her business by purchasing canned goods, sweets, grains, and candy, etc. Her dream is to expand her store and to have a bigger store.
