Glady Mercedes's story

Glady Mercedes is married and has four children. Her husband is a merchant. They live in their own home. They live in Picoazá, which is known for its commerce and its religious festivals and is a producer of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruit. It is a source of progress and the main informal commercial center of Manabí.

Glady Mercedes, together with her husband, makes a living selling a variety of products. He goes out to sell on the street in a number of areas of the city while she sells sheets, mosquito nets, mattress covers, towels, hammocks, pots, plastic chairs, and many other items from home.

The health crisis was very bad for her at the beginning since she couldn't sell, but now little by little things are starting up again so that she can continue to generate income. In her family her father in law died of COVID-19.

With this new loan she will continue buying hammocks, mosquito nets, towels, etc. Her dream is to have her own shop and to continue with her sales, and for her family to have good health.
