Francisca's story

Francisca is 70 years old, a widow, and has 4 children, all adults and independent. She owns her house. They live in Portoviejo, a city affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016 and now by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Francisca works making sheets, which she later sells to customers who order the items. She also sells products from Yanbal, Avon (perfumes, creams, jewelry, and accessories), and Nature's Garden (natural, health and beauty products) catalogs. She sells these at her house. At first the health crisis was very bad for her since she was unable to sell but now, little by little, she is reactivating it so to be able to continue generating her income.

This loan is to purchase sheets, natural products, makeup, perfume, etc. Her dream is to be very healthy and that her business continues growing.
