Marcelina De Jesus's story

Marcelina De Jesus and her family live in Tosagua, a very dynamic city in the areas of agriculture and animal husbandry which are the financial backbone of the area. The city has also been hard hit by Covid 19.

She is a tenacious woman who knows how to deal with difficulties and, although it is hard because of the pandemic, she does it for the well being of her family. She makes her living selling clothing. Before the pandemic she would travel to Colombia where she would buy the merchandise that she would then distribute to her clients. Now she can't travel or go out to make sales but she came up with a way to do it through social media. Although her sales have fallen at least this way she can generate an income.

She will use this loan to buy jeans, blouses, tee shirts and other articles of clothing.
