Bertha Rosa's story

Bertha Rosa is 75 years old, divorced, and has 6 children, all adults and independent. She owns her house. They live in Portoviejo, a city 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.

Bertha Rosa works selling a variety of clothing for women, men, and children, and women's shoes and purses. She works three or four days a week. She makes rounds through various sectors of the city, leaves the merchandise on credit, and collects weekly.

At first, the health crisis was very bad for her since she was unable to sell 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 orders of purses, shoes, t-shirts, jeans, shirts, pajamas, etc. Her dream is that her business continues growing and that her family is very healthy.
