Gissella Karina's story

Gissella Karina is in a common-law marriage and has two children. Her husband devotes himself to fishing. They live in Manta, a city visited a lot because of its beautiful beaches that bathe its coasts and for its delicious cuisine.

Gissella is a very hard-working woman. Thanks to the loans she manages to help her husband and to get the family business ahead. Her husband has a boat in which he goes fishing every week. He goes for five days in a row with people from the area who pay him for his work. Once they return with the fish, she helps him with the sales to merchants who come to the place, or she helps deliver the fish to the places where they are bought.

This loan is to buy fishing materials. Her dream is to study beauty and to have a beauty salon.
