Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria is 47 years old. She is married and has no children. Her husband is a fisherman. They live in the Machalilla parish, a port visited by many tourists who enjoy its wonderful beach and its delicious cuisine. This area was much affected by the pandemic caused by Covid 19.

Ana Maria is a strong woman who has had to live through very difficult situations. To help with the household expenses, she started her business selling rails and netting for shrimp companies. The business doesn't have a locale, it's in her house, where her regular customers go to buy when they need her product. During the months of the pandemic, her sales went down because there wasn't any fishing, but now it's getting back to normal, and she's starting to sell.

With the loan from the foundation, Ana Maria will invest in buying netting for shrimp companies to sell. Her dream is to have a locale.
