Nelly Monserrate's story

Nelly Monserrate and her family live in the city of Montecristi, which is known for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its crafts. The area was very affected by COVID-19.

She is a persevering woman, who has not stopped fighting despite challenges she has faced. Instead, she tries to confront the challenges and go forward. She has a store where she sells a variety of staple products. In the store, she has display cases, from which she sells clothing, a variety of miscellaneous items, and stationery.

Despite her fear of getting sick, she has continued her business. Although she sells a little less than normal, continuing the business earns her enough to cover necessary expenses, but she does not have enough to cover her debts.

This loan to buy supplies, household items, clothing, and other products.
