Elsa Mercedes's story

Elsa Mercedes and her family live in the Jipijapa canton, known as the "Sultana del Café" for its coffee-growing tradition. This area has also been greatly affected by the effects of COVID-19.

She is a very determined woman who does all she can to earn a living. In spite of the difficulties that the pandemic is currently causing, she continues to move forward with the help of these loans. She has a store in her house where she sells soft drinks, water, ice and other beverages, as well as candy, tortilla chips and other snack foods. Quarantine was very tough for her because her business was closed for a long time, but now things are looking better, so she hopes that everything will work out.

This loan will be used to buy soft drinks, juices, water, and snack foods.
