A loan of $675 helped to buy notebooks and food.


Maira Raquel's story

Maira lives in Guayaqil. She started out of the need to have monetary income in order to be able to help with the family expenses. She chose the business activity of selling stationery goods and staple foods because she likes sales. Little by little, her income was improving and she was increasing the food and stationery goods at her store.

She now works alone from 6:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. The difficulty that she has in her business is the lack of capital.

She is single, and she has three children. The children attend public school.

She will use the loan to buy notebooks and food. Her dream is to expand her business in order to have greater income.
