Paula Narcisa's story

Paula Narcisa lives with her family in Puerto López, a town with beautiful beaches and tourist attractions that make it a popular destination. Today the beaches are deserted due to the crisis caused by Covid-19.

In spite of her age, she never stops. She keeps going thanks to the loans that allow her to finance her business. She has a grocery store where she sells basic food staples to meet her customers' needs. During quarantine it was very difficult to work, because of government restrictions and the fear of getting sick. But she found the strength to keep going and manages to keep up sales. Even though her profit barely covers her expenses she is still hopeful that better days will come.

She will use this loan to stock up on products for her store, such as rice, oil, tuna, etc. She hopes things will improve day by day and her business will get back to how it used to be.
