Marina Monserrate's story

Marina Monserrate is a widow. She has 3 children who are adults and independent. She lives in her own house. They live in Jaramijó, which is a town of fishermen. Its economy is based in fishing, tourism, and industry. On April 16, 2016, there was an earthquake and now, with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is paralyzed in its recovery of industry and business.

Marina Monserrate works selling clothing for boys and girls. She makes her sales by making rounds every day, offering her clothing to her most frequent customers, leaving them on credit and collecting fortnightly. During this global crisis, she has had some financial difficulties, her customers are unable to pay her because they have been unemployed, and others died. The health crisis was very bad for her at the beginning since she was no longer able to sell, but now it is gradually reactivating so to be able to continue generating income. In her family, one son died of COVID-19.

With this new loan, she will purchase orders of dresses, pajamas, shorts, t-shirts, etc. Her dream is to be very healthy and that her business continues growing.
