Edilcita Monserrate's story

Edilcita Monserrate is married and has 3 children, one of legal age and independent and two minors, who study at college and university. Her husband is a master lathe operator. They live in their own home. They live in Portoviejo, a city affected by the earthquake on April 16, 2016 and now by the covid-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes and tropical fruits for internal consumption.

Edilcita Monserrate continues with her small workshop where she makes and repairs garments that her clients bring her. She makes a variety of garments especially for women and works from Monday to Friday. The health crisis at first was very bad since she could not work for the fear of contagion, but now little by little she is reactivating her business in order to continue generating income.

With this new loan, she will buy buttons, threads, fabrics, and make machine repairs. Her dream is to have a bigger workshop and for her family to continue in good health. Her dream is to have more machines and for her family to be very healthy.
