Myrian Vicenta's story

Myrian Vicenta is married. She has five grown children who live on their own. Two of her children go to university. Her husband is a woodworker. They live in their own home in Portoviejo. Portoviejo is rich in vegetable, legume and tropical fruit production for domestic consumption. Portoviejo was affected by the April 26th, 2016 earthquake and now by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Myrian Vicenta and her husband have a lumber yard. They are open for business every day from 7:00 am until 6:00pm. They sell a variety of wood to meet all of their customers' needs. They also have a small hardware store that they are setting up bit by bit.

The health crisis was very bad for Myrian Vicenta in the beginning as she couldn't make her sales. Her family got sick with Covid-19, both Myrian and her husband. Two family members unfortunately passed away. But now, little by little, the business is getting revived and she can continue generating an income.

With this new loan, Myrian Vicenta will purchase cedar, laurel, teak, framing lumber etc. Her hopes are to have a larger lumber yard and for her family to be very healthy.
