A loan of $675 helped to buy vegetables and cement, sand, and cement blocks to remodel her son's room.


Anonymous's story

The client lives in Guayaquil. She is an enterprising woman because, in spite of being a single mother, she continues working for her two children. She started with her vegetable business in the areas surrounding her house so that she would have enough income to give her children the best. She has been working for four years selling vegetables. She starts buying the vegetables at the central market at 7:00 a.m, and she works selling them until 6:00 p.m. One of the difficulties that she has with her business is that she has to give special care to her child who has a disability. This makes it so that she is not in her business 100%.

She has a lot of hopes for her business. Therefore, she wants to invest part of the money in vegetables. She will use the other part to remodel her son’s room. She will buy cement, sand, and cement blocks.
