Maria Natividad
María lives in the city of La Libertad, Ecuador. The beginning of her story took place many years ago when she sold fish by traveling through the streets. This was the only way she knew how and was able to gain many customers. As time passed, she learned how to provide good service to her customers and deliver fresh products to them. With great effort, she set up her business at a stall in the municipal market in her city. She currently attends to her customers personally.

For this reason, María decided to request a loan from Banco D-MIRO because she wants to have her own chilling equipment for storing fish and shellfish.
