Mercy Auxiliadora's story
Mercy and her family live in the city of Portoviejo, a place very affected by an earthquake which destroyed a large part of the city. On the night of the earthquake, her family was very afraid and pained upon seeing the walls of their house left with many cracks and the majority of the household appliances destroyed. She had a business selling ceviches [a traditional dish] which also suffered damages since in the retail space many shellfish were damaged, which due to the lack of electricity decomposed, in addition the dishes and the freezer broke down, in addition for some days she could not work due to the instability that there was in the city. After a time, she began with her sales and for this she has asked for another loan with which to purchase all the materials and products to continue selling her foods and, so, little by little with her earnings fix the walls of her house and purchase the supplies that they are lacking so much.
