Pilar Del Rocio's story

Pilar Del Rocio is 37 years old and is married. Her husband is a tourist guide. She lives in the city of Puerto López, a place with beautiful beaches where the people make a living in fishing and also tourism, which has been greatly affected by the pandemic caused by COVID-19.

She is a woman who looks for ways to earn an income and help with the expenses, now more than ever since her husband can't go to work because there aren't any tourists coming to the area. She works selling shoes out of catalogs. Before the public health emergency, she had very good sales, but with the current situation, her business has declined because she can't go out to offer her products for fear of contracting the virus. Now she sells through social media, and although she doesn't sell as much, it helps her a lot. With this loan, she hopes to revive her business.

She will use this loan to buy shoes. Her hopes are for this crisis to pass and to return to her business.
