Esperanza Soledad's story

Esperanza Soledad and her family live in the city of Manta, a place of beautiful beaches and and a very varied cuisine that attracts tourists.

She is a woman who has always liked to work and in this way manages to earn her own resources with which she can move forward. She is engaged in trade. With this she earns her resources. But occasionally this is not sufficient to cover certain urgent expenses like now, when she needs this loan as her grandson is studying mechanics and needs a computer as many tasks are sent to him and without a computer he would not be able to complete.

This loan is to buy a computer. Her dream is to give the best to her family.
