Jesenia Elizabeth's story

Jesenia Elizabeth is 40 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has two daughters (ages 20 and 18) who are studying at the university. Her husband is a painter. They live in Manta, an enchanting city that is known for its beautiful beaches and exquisite cuisine.

Jesenia is a woman who is known for being cheerful, friendly, and extremely hardworking. She partners with her husband each day to earn income, but occasionally they do not have sufficient funds to cover certain expenses. Her two daughters are students, one is studying Architecture and the other is studying Veterinary Medicine. For this reason, Jesenia needs a loan to buy a laptop computer since her daughters have assignments and research that are required for their university classes.

This loan will be used to buy a laptop computer. Jesenia dreams of seeing her daughters become professionals.
