Jessenia Patricia's story

Jessenia Patricia is 40 and married. She has one child who is an adult and two younger ones who are 16 and 15. Her husband is a fisherman. They live in Manta, one of the most important cities for commerce and tourism on the coast of Ecuador. It offers exquisite cuisine, beaches, hotels, and other places of interest to tourists.

Jessenia Patricia is a humble woman who really likes to work so that she can earn her own financial resources and support her husband with the household expenses. Thanks to the loans, she and her husband are able to continue their fish-selling business. Her husband goes out in his boat to fish, and then sells the product to merchants. The loans help her a lot because she can continue running her business.

She will invest this loan in fishing equipment. Her dreams are to be able to buy another boat and for her business to keep improving.
