Mercedes Rocio's story

Mercedes is 40 years old. She is in a common law marriage. She has 1 grown children and two minor children, aged 13 and 4. Her husband is a fisherman. They live in a relative's house in the Jaramijo canton, known as the Fishermen's Cove.

Mercedes is an enterprising woman who strives everyday to pay for the household expenses. That is why she started her business 10 years ago, selling beauty products and clothing. She used to sell as a street vendor, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, her business suffered due to public health reasons and her income went down drastically. That is why she is now asking for a new loan to reactivate her business again.

She will invest this loan in buying beauty products and clothing. Her dream is for her business to progress again and to be able to own her own home.
