A loan of $675 helped to buy groceries for her store.


Mercy Marivel's story

This borrower lives in the Fortín sector of Guayaquil. Her story began some time ago when she received a government subsidy. Along with some of her savings and a loan that she requested sometime later, the borrower was able to open her business. She works alone throughout the day. The borrower is a single mother and has three-year-old twin daughters. She dreams of growing her business even more so that it becomes the most recommended store in her area.


For now, she needs to invest a loan in groceries (rice, sausages, and meat) for her business.
