Mónica Liliana's story

This borrower is from the city of Machala. She started her business after her last pregnancy because she needed income. Her husband helped her set up a store and a diner, both of which she has managed to this very day. She works three days a week selling food and on the other days she sells shoes and cosmetics. The borrower is married and her husband works as a butcher. They have four children who attend a state school in the neighborhood.

In the future, she aspires to have a business in her house, maintain a restaurant in the city market, and see that her children remain healthy.
