Mariana Narciza's story

The city of Portoviejo was affected by the April 16, 2016 earthquake. The city produces an abundance of vegetables and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Mariana Narciza is 58 years old, divorced, and has three independent, adult children. She lives in the house of one of her daughters.

In order to support herself and help with some of the expenses at home, Mariana sells perfume essences. She buys them from a distributor where they are of high quality. Her customers are pleased.

Mariana makes her sales by offering to business establishments, going door to door, and via WhatsApp. She sells her merchandise on credit and collects payment weekly.

Mariana will use this new loan to purchase perfume with new fragrances. Her dream is to have her own house and for her business to continue to grow.
