Yessica Marina's story

Yessica Marina lives in the city of Machala. Ever since she finished school, she has enjoyed selling paper goods and office supplies. She also works as a hair stylist. For this reason, she started up a business where she could do both activities at the same time. She works alone in the mornings, tending to her stationery store, and in the afternoons she works in her salon. She is separated, but the father of her children sends a monthly stipend for their expenses. Her 2 children attend public school in the neighborhood where they live. Yessica Marina needs to buy merchandise (books, notebooks) and equipment for her salon.
