Mercedes Monserrate's story

Mercedes Monserrate is 47 years old and in a common-law marriage. She has three children from this relationship. They live in Manta, a beautiful, hospitable city that is often visited for its wonderful beaches and exquisite cuisine.

Mercedes is a good, hard-working woman who likes to help her partner pay the household expenses, and so they banded together to set up a welding workshop in her home, where her partner works six days of the week for seven hours a day.

This loan is for buying electrodes and welders. Her dream is to have her own home and workshop.
