Elsa Benedicta's story

Elsa is 63 years old and single. She has three grown and independent children. She lives in the beautiful city of Portoviejo where its people are very responsible and enterprising. This city has been greatly affected by the health emergency caused by Covid-19.

She is a woman who struggles day to day in order to get her own income and to get ahead in this way. She is a doctor, but she retired some time ago. With the retirement money and by getting loans she decided to build two furnished apartments and two bedrooms to rent.

She generally rents to students, but the modality for classes has changed due to the pandemic. Now she does not have renters. Also, she has a business selling shrimp, which is now also suspended. She hopes this situation ends soon and that everything will return to normal.

This loan is to invest in her apartments by installing water systems and doors, etc. Her dream is for everything to return to normal.
