Maria Lourdes's story

Maria Lourdes is 37 years old and married. From this relationship, she has three children ages 16, 14, and 9. They attend secondary and primary school, and her husband is a ceramics teacher. They live in Manta, a beautiful city located on the shores of the Pacific, in the south of the Manabí province and well-known for its beautiful beaches.

Maria Lourdes is a woman who likes to work and get ahead along with her family. For this reason, for the past several years she has had a cyber cafe and mini bookstore in her house, where she sells notebooks, pencils, paper, and markers; has appointments; and prints papers among other services. She works every day Monday through Sunday. Due to the pandemic, her sales have decreased a little, and she hopes that as the situation improves, they will increase.

She will invest the loan in the purchase of school supplies and the maintenance of two computers. Her hope is to be healthy and that her business will be a success.
