A loan of $1,100 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Linda Katherine's story

Linda lives in Guayaquil. She started with her business because her father had already started the store a long time ago. As time went by, she decided to buy the grocery store from him so she could cover her expenses and meet her needs. She currently works alone all day; she opens at 7am and closes at 7pm. She sells carbohydrates, dairy products, beverages, etc. Her difficulty is robberies which is why she has to close the store early.

She’s married and her husband works in the Cuatro Manzanas market as a polisher. She does not have any children but is expecting one. She wants to use the loan to buy grocery items like beverages, canned goods, sweets, meats, etc. for the store. Her dream is that her father has a good life and that the business grows.
