Maria Lastenia's story

Maria Lastenia and her family live in Montecristi, known for its crafts which are well-known at the national and international level. This is a place which has been hit hard by COVID-19, which has caused many deaths.

She is a hard-working woman who, in light of the terrible crisis, gathers strength to get ahead with her family. It is thanks to a grocery store that they managed this. There, she works in the mornings and the permitted hours serving her customers. Although the fear persists, she does it since in this way she manages to earn an income which helps them a lot since her spouse is unable to go to work due to heath measures and because there is no work.

This loan is to stock her store, which was sold out. Her aspirations are to improve her business and to get ahead.
