Lidice Monserrate's story

Lidice Monserrate and her family live in Montecristi Canton, the birthplace place of the famous toquilla straw hats.

She is a woman who likes to work and in this way earn a daily living. She works in trade, but despite making good earnings, sometimes this is not enough to cover certain urgent expenses. She needs this credit because her children need a computer, since there are many jobs and research that are sent to them from the school where they study.

This credit is to buy a computer. Her dreams is to give her family the best.
