Alba Vicenta's story

Alba Vicenta is married and has 4 children. Her children are of the age of majority, but one is disabled and lives at home and needs care. Her husband is retired. They live in their own house. They live in Rocafuerte, which is well known, inside and out, for its artisanal traditional sweets made from recipes handed down from generation to generation and its rice crops.

Many years ago, Alba Vicenta started renting apartments to small families, students and particular individuals. With this income, she was able to cover the family expenses, especially those of her daughter who needs special care, including medical attention and medication.

The tenants pay her monthly. At the beginning of the health crisis, things were going poorly for Alba because her tenants could no longer pay their rent. But, little by little, they're catching up on their payments but she's had to lower rents.

She's requesting this loan to buy tiles and pay for repairs and renovations to the empty apartments.

Her hopes include staying healthy so she can continue caring for her daughter and renting out all of the empty apartments and rooms.
