A loan helped to buy rice and sugar.

Diana Alejandra's story

Diana is 19 years old and lives with her husband, 30 year old Oswaldo. They live with her in laws in Santo Domingo Nueva province in Ecuador. Oswaldo works as a driver for a company and Diana started a business selling rice to help out in the household. Both support each other, especially on the weekends which is when they both go out in her in-laws’ car to nearby areas to deliver their product.

Fundación Alternativa had the opportunity to help this couple with a loan to buy cooking oil and sugar because their customers are requesting those types of products. They are very grateful for the help and are certain that their income will increase and allow them to improve their quality of life. These earnings will allow them to buy a car of their own so they can visit more areas.
