Erika Lucia's story

Erika Lucia is 33 years old, married, has an 11-year-old daughter, and her spouse is a merchant. They live in the city of Puerto López, a place of lovely beaches and tourist attractions which has been hit very hard by the health emergency caused by COVID-19.

She is a hard-working woman who seeks the way to earn resources and, so, to get ahead. Although things are difficult because of the pandemic, she continues with her business. She has a stationery store in her house. For her, the situation at first was not easy, since she was unable to open her business, then she was able to open and make the most of the start of school. Despite sales not being as they were in previous years, at least with her sales she manages to earn something and to continue hoping for better days.

This loan is to purchase notebooks, pens, and other school supplies.
