Yulexi Tatiana's story

The city of Manta is considered the most important getaway spot, popular and visited in Ecuador because of its beautiful and welcoming beaches. It is Ecuador and South America's first deep water port. This is where, every 15 days, the 'Los Radicales' (The Radicals) Credit Group meets.

It is also the home of Mrs. Yulexi, who is 24 years old and in a free union relationship. She has two children from this relationship, ages 9 and 2. The eldest studies in school. Her husband is a construction worker.

Mrs. Yulexy is a hard working woman who does as much as possible to help her husband with the expenses of the home. She does this through the sale of Yanbal products (beauty products, cosmetics, perfumes and women's accessories). She sells door to door, going out every morning to make her rounds and she also sells from her home. She sells on credit and collects payments every week. She has been doing this for the past 3 years and it allows her to make her own for the good of her family.

This loan will be used to purchase perfumes, creams, cosmetics and costume jewelry. She has done two cycles with the credit group and is very thankful for the help the loans provide. Her dream is to provide the best for her children.
