Mariana Monserrate's story

Mariana Monserrate is married. She has two children who are adult and independent. Her husband is retired. They live in their own house. They live in Manta which was affected by the April 16, 2016 earthquake with loss of buildings, businesses, and many lives. It is considered the most important seaside resort with lovely beaches. Most of the residents work in fishing.

In her house, Mariana Monserrate has a small distributorship of containers of gas and water. She sells every day. Her husband helps with the sales. The health crisis was very bad at first, because she could not sell, but now little by little she is selling again and generating income. In her family, one brother died of Covid-19.

With this new loan, she will buy containers of water and cylinders of gas. Her dream is that her family will have good health and that her business will continue growing.
