Dayana Jamileth's story

Dayana Jamileth is 21-years old. She is married and has a one-year old son. Her husband is a street vendor who sells hand-made sweets. They live in their parents' home in Picoazá. Picoazá is known for its shops and its religious festivals. The area produces vegetables, legumes and tropical fruit. It is a source of progress and Manabí's main unofficial commercial center.

Dayana Jamileth and her family make and sell hand-made sweets in their home. They prepare the sweets, "huevos moyos, troliches, cocadas" etc. (various traditional, local confections) on Thursdays. The other days of the week are dedicated to selling. Dayana Jamileth's husband travels to various areas to sell on the beaches, in the town centers, on the streets etc. They also sell to shop keepers and individuals who pre-order.

The health crisis was very bad for them in the beginning as they couldn't make their sales. But now, little by little, their business is reviving itself and they are able to continue earning an income.

With this new loan, Dayan Jamileth will purchase milk, sugar, coconuts, extracts, food coloring, kitchen utensils etc. Her hopes are for her family to stay very healthy and for their business to continue to grow.
