Jenny Viviana's story

Jenny is a charismatic and enthusiastic woman with a huge desire to get ahead with her three children. She is a single mother and lives in a house provided by one of her brother-in-laws.

Jenny has been out of work for the last three years. The business where she was working closed and since then, she has made a living selling clothing from catalogues. This has allowed her to support her children.

She wants to stock up on merchandise for the Christmas season, but does not have the necessary capital. For this reason, she has approached Banco Vision Fund Ecuador in search of a loan, which will allow her to reach her aim.

With this help, this noble and admirable woman will be able to continue fighting for a better future for her children, since she has had to provide for them herself.
