Mayra Elizabeth's story

Mayra Elizabeth lives with her family in Portoviejo, the "city of royal tamarind trees."

She is a woman who has always enjoyed working so that she can make her own income. She works selling fast food, which allows her to generate her own resources but isn't always enough to cover certain emergency expenses, such as now. Her son needs a computer because he is getting a lot of homework assignments at school and without it he won't be able to keep up.

She will use this loan to buy a computer. Her goal is to have the best for her son.
