A loan of $625 helped to buy school supplies and uniforms.

Sirly Johanna's story

Sirly lives in Guayaquil. She started by selling catalog products, and little by little improved her sales. In order to start a larger business, she invested capital in a stationery and gift store. Currently she has a stationary store and still sells by catalog. She works on her own from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. She sells notebooks and thanks God that she is not having difficulties in her business.

She is single and has a five-year-old daughter who has recently started school. With the loan she wants to buy school supplies and uniforms, as classes have begun. Her dream is to have another store for her family, so that she can raise her daughter with no difficulty.
