Ana Mercedes's story

Ana Mercedes is 50 years old, widowed, and has three grown children. She lives in Manta, a prosperous city that is frequented by many tourists who enjoy its beautiful beaches. However, tourism has diminished because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ana is a woman who strives to make an honest living by managing a store and a discount shop that she established at her house eight years ago. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, her business has been barely affected even though her sales have decreased. The customers who frequently visit her business have stayed home for fear of getting sick. Despite this situation, she continues to push forward to prevent her business from declining and to keep it in operation.

This loan will be used to buy provisions, beverages, cleaning products, and other merchandise to restart her business. Her dream is to keep her business growing.
