Cruz Marcelina's story

Cruz Marcelina is 61 years old, her spouse died 15 years ago due to a heart attack, and she has four children, all adults. They live in Manta, a very lovely touristic city surrounded by lovely beaches, with very friendly and enterprising people. This city has been greatly affected by the health emergency caused by COVID-19.

She is a woman who has worked her whole live to support her family and get ahead together. For 20 years, she has worked as a travelling salesperson and has a business selling clothing and shoes. She makes rounds to sell her products for cash and on credit, and she collects weekly. In addition, she makes and sells snacks to order.

Due to the pandemic, her sales have dropped a lot, and her income as well. But, thanks to God, it has begun to reactivate. With this loan, she hopes to strengthen her business and to continue working to improve her finances.

She will invest this loan in the purchase of clothing and shoe merchandise for her business. Her dream is to continue with her business.
