Maria Jose's story

Maria Jose is 22 years old. She cohabits, does not yet have children, and her partner is a fisherman. They live in the city of Puerto López, a place with beautiful beaches frequented by tourists. These beaches are now deserted because of the COVID-19 health emergency.

She is a woman who seeks to earn her income and thus help her husband get ahead. Despite the difficulties of the pandemic, she keeps going and this is thanks to the loans that allow her to finance her business.

Maria Jose sells rice. She buys in bulk and later sells it out of her house to her customers' liking, be it in quintals or small bags starting at 10 pounds. In this way, she manages to earn her income. Although she is still afraid of getting sick, she does it thinking of her family.

This loan is to buy rice and bags to sell.
