Rocío Valeria's story

Rocío is 24 years old, is married, and has a 5-year-old child; her husband is a construction worker. They live in the city of Portoviejo, which has beautiful places that mix rural landscapes and beaches that are very popular with locals and tourists.

She is a very hard working woman who likes to earn her own resources and help her husband bring their household forward. She is dedicated to selling clothing from door to door; she also sells from her house. She sells on credit, and collects payment every 8 days. This type of sales gives her the best earnings, since her merchandise sells faster and selling on credit earns her a little more.

This loan is going to be used to buy pants, shirts, blouses, and children's clothing. Her dream is to give the best to her family.
