Zoila Isabel's story

Zoila Isabel and her family live in the Calderón de Portoviejo parish, known for its gastronomy. It is known for blood sausage and sausage, peanut butter, salprieta (typical side dish), caramel peanuts, salted peanuts, cracked peanuts and peanut flour, among other derivatives.
Zoila Isabel used to sell clothes but now at home she maintains her sewing workshop with which she can pay for her expenses and those of her family. During this world crisis they have experienced financial difficulties. Her clients did not reach her so that she could make them the garments, but now little by little it is reactivating it in order to continue generating its income. This credit is to buy fabrics, elastics, threads, etc. Her dream is to have a large sewing workshop and for her family to be very healthy.
