Angela Benita's story

Angela Benita is 67 years of age, is separated, and has 3 children who are of age and independent. They live in Cantón Paján, a very productive area in the province of Manabí, where its inhabitants are very friendly and hardworking, and coffee, cocoa, rice, corn, etc. are cultivated. This area was greatly affected by the pandemic.

Angela Benita is an enterprising woman, and for some time she has been engaging in crafting all sorts of handmade items for parties, made from Foamies [craft foam] and cardboard: arrangements, hats, piñatas, masks, and centerpieces among others. Before the pandemic, she was in great demand by her customers, but due to the health emergency her orders decreased. Now, little by little, she is beginning to reactivate her business.

With the money from the loan, Angela Benita will buy materials for continuing with her crafts. Angela Benita's dream is to continue working.
