A loan of $1,650 helped to buy rice, oil, and tuna.


Isabel Leopoldina's story

Isabel lives in Guayaquil. She opened her store in August 2011 and began selling products such as rice by the pound, oil, and tuna to her customers. Gradually she was able to improve her income. Isabel currently works in her grocery store from 6:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M.


Her difficulty is dealing with the crime that exists in the area where she has her business. Isabel is married and her husband works as a bus driver. They have three children, but they are not in school since they are small.


With this loan, Isabel will buy rice, oil, and tuna. Her dream is to excel at home and with her business, as well as help her children finish their studies.
