Juana Ofelia's story

Juana Ofelia lives with her family in the city of Bahía, which was affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016. Now, the city is rebuilding its infrastructure and buildings, and is promoting tourism. This is a place with beautiful beaches where tourists can enjoy all types of acquatic sports.

Juana Ofelia has a business selling clothing through various catalogs that her customers can access on the internet and WhatsApp. When her customers, consisting of people close to her family, indicate what they want from the catalogs, Juana Ofelia delivers the products on credit and collects weekly.

During this worldwide crisis, Juana Ofelia has experienced financial difficulties. Her customers were not able to pay because they had lost their jobs, and others died. At first, this health crisis affected her very badly, because she was not able to sell. Now, she is gradually reactivating her business so that she can continue to generate income.

Juana Ofelia will use this loan to fill orders from her customers for pants, shorts, dresses, t-shirts, and other items. She dreams of having her own shop, and seeing her family continue forward in good health.
