Samantha Ximena's story

Samantha Ximena lives in Montecristi Canton, a place known for its famous Panama hats. The area has been greatly impacted by the effects of Covid-19.

Samantha is a young woman who, thanks to the loans, is able to continue with her business making a living and more with this pandemic that has affected everyone so much. She has a shop in a historic museum in town, where she sells all kinds of handicrafts, bracelets, Panama hats, and other items. The pandemic was very difficult for her because she had to close her shop for almost two months. She only sold from her home, although not very much. Now, she is already selling again and hopes things continue in this way.

She will use this loan to purchase bracelets, necklaces, change purses, ornaments, Panama hats, and other handicrafts.
