Jenny Vibiana's story

Jenny Vibiana is married and has three children. Her husband's a cabinetmaker. They live in a house loaned to them by her mother-in-law in Portoviejo, a city affected by the 16 April 2016 earthquake and now by the Covid-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of greens, vegetables, and tropical fruit for domestic consumption.

Jenny Vibiana and her husband have a small cabinetry shop. They work Monday through Saturday for eight hours. Their customers order closets, doors, tables, chairs, etc., in various types of wood, which they buy from warehouses.

The health crisis was very bad for them in the beginning because they weren't able to tend the shop or even finish the jobs, but now they're reactivating little by little so they can continue to generate their income.

In her family, she, her husband, and a daughter got sick with Covid-19, but now they're recuperating little by little.

With this new loan she's going to buy wood, hinges, shellac, paint, paint thinner, sandpaper, etc.

Her dream is to have a bigger cabinetry shop and to be able to provide jobs for more people.
