Nuris Concepcion's story

Nuria Concepción is married and has 2 adult children. Her husband is a master builder and farmer. They live in their own home. They live in San Clemente, a fishing town. Its economy is based on fishing, salt extraction, tourism, and the trade of handicrafts like atarrayas [cast nets] and objects made from shells and snails, on a smaller scale.

Nuris Concepción continues with her small tailor shop where she makes a large variety of clothes. She does this in the afternoons. She also makes a living by working at a school snack and ice cream bar in the mornings. This location is rented. She works Monday to Friday when school is in session.

At the beginning, the health crisis made her feel very bad since she could not work either in the tailor shop or in the bar. But little by little, she is starting her business back up so that she is able to continue generating income.

In her family, an aunt fell sick with COVID-19, but she is now recovering. However, unfortunately, 12 family members passed away.

With this new loan, she will purchase cloth and thread for making clothes. Her dream is to have a pig farm and for her family to have much health.
