Maria Isabel Del Pilar's story

Maria Isabel Del Pilar is 54 years old, divorced, and has 3 adult children. They live in Tosagua, a canton in the province of Manabí, where agriculture and cattle raising are the main sources of income. This place has also been very affected by COVID-19.

She is a hard-working woman who, together with her mother and children, does what she can to face the difficult situation caused by the health emergency.

They have a small eatery in the house. Previously, that was where they prepared food and received their customers, who always preferred them for the seasoning in their dishes. At the beginning, they had to close and didn't know what to do. Then, little by little, they started to prepare food and deliver it to their customers' houses. Now, the number of requests is rising, they deliver to houses and workplaces and the situation is, little by little, getting better.

She will use this loan to buy rice, chickens, meat, vegetable, etc. Her dream is to open her eatery once again.
