Iris Cecibel's story

Iris Cecibel and her family live in the canton of Rocafuerte, a place known for it delicious sweets.

She is a very hardworking woman who looks for ways to earn resources to use to support her family. She sells clothing, making a living this way, but sometimes this is not enough to cover certain urgent expenses. For instance, now she needs this loan because her daughter needs a computer as there is a lot of study and research she needs to do to become a professional.

This loan is to buy a computer. Her dream is that her daughter becomes a professional.
