Maria Alexandra's story

Maria is 46 years old, married, and has two grown children and a 13-year-old child. Her husband is a fisherman. They live in the canton of Jaramijo, which is known as a fisherman’s cove.

Maria is an enterprising woman who strives each day to cover the household expenses. For this reason, she started her business 15 years ago. She sells fish by the pound and conducts her sales from her home. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, her business declined because of biosafety issues and her income diminished drastically. Maria is now requesting a new loan in order to restart her business.

This loan will be invested in the purchase of fish. Her dreams are to see her business continue to make progress and to improve her finances.
