Maria Victoria's story

Maria Victoria is divorced and has three adult and independent children. They live in their own house. They live in Portoviejo, which was affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016 and now by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Maria Victoria works at home and in her customers' homes doing manicures and pedicures. She works every day and also makes the most of it and sells shoes, and a variety of clothing for women, men and children. She also sells at her house to her relatives, friends, and neighbors. She leaves them on credit and collects weekly.

During this global crisis, she has had financial difficulties. Her customers are unable to pay her because they have been unemployed and others have died. The health crisis at first was very bad for her but now, little by little, she is reactivating it so to be able to continue generating her income.

With this new loan, she will purchase many colors of nail polish, exfoliants, etc. Her dream is to have a retail space and that her family continues to be very healthy.
