Carmen Maria's story

Carmen Maria is 36 years old, in a common-law marriage, and has 2 children, ages 20 and 14, and one goes to secondary school. Her spouse is a shrimp merchant. They live in San Agustín, which is a sector on the Tosagua Bahía road from Caráquez, where the people work in agriculture, raise animals, and work selling shrimp from pools.

At her house, and as a street vendor through various sectors, Carmen Maria works selling shrimp. She sells these every day and at her house with the help of her spouse. For her customers who place orders for restaurants, eateries, and others, she makes deliveries on Sundays.

At first the health crisis was very bad for her since she was unable to sell but now, little by little, she is reactivating it so to be able to continue generating her income.

Her dream is to have a retail space to continue with her sales and that her family continues being very healthy. This loan is to purchase shrimp.
