Mercedes Elizabeth's story

The city of Portoviejo was affected by an earthquake on April 16, 2016. It is a city that is rich in its production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Mercedes is 42 years old, married, and has two children, ages 14 and 20. Her younger child is in high school. Her husband is a truck driver. They live in their own home.

Mercedes continues to work at her small sewing workshop where she produces a wide variety of women’s clothes. Her work comes from orders placed by private individuals who visit her shop to submit their requests.

This new loan will be used to buy fabrics, thread, buttons, and other materials for making clothes. Her dream is for her family to continue being in good health and for her business to keep growing.
