Julia Rosario's story

Julia lives in Guayaquil. She started her business of selling food and managing phone booths several years ago when she needed more income for her family. Over time she was able to open a restaurant and have multiple sources of income. Her husband also has a few phone booths that he manages.


Julia currently manages two businesses, but she wants to keep progressing so that she can provide the best for her children. She has three children who are studying at state schools. One of her children appears with her in the photo. Julia’s children have already enrolled in their classes, but she needs to fund their studies. She needs a loan for the school supplies her children have requested.
