Lourdes Marlene's story

Lourdes is 26 years old and is in a common-law marriage. Her husband is a builder and they live in the Montecristi canton, known for its rich, pre-colonial culture and for its crafts, recognized at a national and international level. It is also the place of the famous straw (Panama) hats.

She is a woman who likes to be productive and thus earn her own income, with which she can continue to improve her quality of life. She makes a living selling clothing, shoes and costume jewelry from a catalog. She sells door-to-door, going out three to four days of the week, although she also sells from her home, where she sells to customers who prefer this. She sells on credit and collects every eight days. She has been doing this job for over four years, which she started with the loans and from which, she earns her living.

This loan is to buy clothing, shoes and costume jewelry and other items that she sells. She is happy because thanks to the loans, she started her business. She dreams of having a baby.
