Gioconda Maribel's story

The city of Portoviejo was affected by the earthquake on April 16, 2016. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Gioconda Maribel is 54 years old. She is divorced and has three children, who are all independent adults. They live in their own house. Gioconda strives every day to be able to contribute to the household expenses. For that reason, she works selling sheets and Boom cleaning products (clothing, floors, bathrooms, and kitchens). She makes sales door to door throughout the area and at her house, where her best-known customers come. She sells on credit and collects payments every eight days. On weekends when they request her cleaning services, she goes to private homes.

With this new loan, she will purchase sheets, cleaning products, etc. Her dreams are to be very healthy and that her business continues growing.
