Lety Maribel's story

Lety Maribel and her family live in Manta, a place where beautiful beaches and a varied cuisine are attractions for tourists.

She is a hardworking woman who earns a living through commerce. She uses her earnings to cover most expenses but sometimes this is not sufficient especially when there are urgent needs.

She currently needs a loan to buy a computer for her son who is attending a local university. He needs the computer to do be able to complete his school's work as there is a lot of research involved.

This loan is to buy a computer. Her dream is that her son be a great professional.
