Yadira Simelanea's story

This borrower is from the area of Suburbio in Guayaquil. She started out selling clothes through catalogs, but later began selling Yanbal and Avon products. She now also sells Omnilife products. Through all of these business activities, the borrower is able to support her children. She travels every day through the neighborhoods in search of customers, generally in the afternoons.

The borrower is separated from her spouse and has four children who are studying at state schools at either the elementary or high school level. She needs to invest the money from her loan in merchandise (cosmetics and beauty products) for her business.
