Yenny Narcisa
This client lives in Guayaquil. She’s been in the clothes making business for more than ten years; she learned this activity from her mother. She works every day from 8am until 6pm with one of her daughters. The difficulty she has is the disease in her legs that keeps her from being able to get around to various parts of the city.

She’s separated from her husband and has three children attending public school. Her dream is to have a formal clothes selling business behind her house and her personal wish is that her children become prepared. She wants to use the loan to buy fabric and thread to make more clothes.
