A loan of $1,625 helped to buy skirts and fabrics..


Maria De Lourdes's story

Maria lives in Guayaquil. She embarked on a project to start a business so that she could have more income. Maria travels to Peru in order to buy clothing since the products over there are much less expensive than they are in Ecuador. Through her trips, she gradually began gaining customers.

Her difficulty with her business is dealing with the crime that exists in the area where she sells clothes. Maria has two children who are studying at state schools. With this loan, she will buy fabrics and skirts so that she can increase her inventory. Her dream is to have her own shop in the central part of the city.
