Irma Hirlanda's story

Irma Hirlanda is 48 years old and is in a common-law marriage. Her partner is a driver. They live in Machalilla, a place with beautiful beaches and an archeology museum that are visited by many tourists but which are now deserted due to the emergency caused by Covid 19.

Irma Hirlanda is a hard-working woman who does what it takes to earn a living. She has an establishment where she prepares and sells food. Prior to the pandemic, every afternoon and evening, Irma Hirlanda prepared delicious roast chickens, rice with vegetable stew, and other quick meals with a lot of love.

During the pandemic Irma Hirlanda had to close down for a long time which led to her using up all of her capital. she is now working and hopes she can continue and count on the help of loans.

The purpose of this loan is to purchase chicken and other ingredients to prepare food.
