Jorge Alexander's story

Jorge Alexander is 20 years old. He is single and lives in his parents’ house in the city of Machalilla, a place that normally is heavily visited by tourists but is now deserted because of the emergency caused by Covid-19.

He is a hard-working young man, who is seeking to earn his resources and, with them, help his parents, who have limited financial resources, and even more so now that things are more difficult because of the pandemic.

He works selling fish and shrimp. He buys from fishermen in the area and then makes sales at his house, either by the pound or wholesale to other merchants. The pandemic has affected him a lot since his sales are not like before. But he continues since he is at least managing to earn a living.

This loan is for the purchase of fish and shrimp.
