Lourdes Maricela and her family live in the city of Puerto Lopez, a place known for its beautiful beaches and tourist attractions and much visited by tourists. The beaches are empty now due to the Covid-19 emergency.

Lourdes is a hardworking women who seeks to earn income and thus help her partner get ahead. The difficult situation of the pandemic still has not ended. It is thanks to the loans that she continues fighting. She works selling clothing and tennis shoes. Business has declined due to the health emergency; she continues selling through social networks and recently began to go out into the city. Although she is selling more, it still is not enough to pay her debts as she always used to do.

This loan is to buy pants, t-shirts, blouses, and tennis shoes.
