Antonia Magdalena's story

The client is from Portoviejo. At the beginning her mother worked making 'jabón pireto' [natural soap] which had passed down through several generations. From then on she’s been in this same activity and it’s been quite productive. She starts work at 6am and goes until 5pm with constant help from her husband and children. She’s in a common law relationship and has ten children four of which live with her. She wants to use the loan to buy raw materials like pine nuts, firewood and lye.
