Estrudes Dolores's story

Estrudes Dolores is a widow. She has an adult, independent son. She lives in her own home in 24 de Mayo. The people there are humble and work in short cycle agriculture (onions, beans, tomatoes), raising poultry, pigs and in general commerce.

Estrudes Dolores sells beverages everyday from her home, like jugs of water and soda. She also sells Azzorti catalog products (beauty and personal care products, clothing and items for the home) as well as Avon (beauty products, cosmetics, perfume and women's accessories). She works three days a week from two to three hours day. She sells her products on credit and collects weekly. She used to sell meat in the market. She now she sells very little of it at home, and only to order. At first, the public health crisis was very bad for her because she couldn't sell. Now, little by little, she is reactivating to continue generating income. Her husband passed away recently and it is very difficult for her because she misses him so much. With this new loan, she will pay for orders of water jugs and soda.

Her dream is for her family to have very good health and for her business to keep growing.
